Richard Feynman said:
If in some cataclysm, all of scientific knowledge were to be destroyed, and only one sentence passed on to the next generations of creatures, what statement would contain the most information in the fewest words? I believe it is the atomic hypothesis (or the atomic fact, or whatever you wish to call it) that all things are made of atoms--little particles that move around in perpetual motion, attracting each other when they are a little distance apart, but repelling upon being squeezed into one another. In that one sentence, you will see, there is an enormous amount of information about the world, if just a little imagination and thinking are applied.
Through a better understanding of atomic interactions, we hope to enable, to motivate, and to build a better understanding of the world around us as a quantum system of many atoms.
In other words, we are trying to further substantiate the atomic hypothesis, making it a basis for many more predictions than currently possible.
