3D Periodic Table in Second Life

Further adding to the set of chemistry tools in Second Life, Hiro Sheridan has created a 3D periodic table with rotating atoms. Although not directly proportional, the relative sizes of the spheres are in the correct order. Clicking on them provides basic information about the corresponding element.

The 3D periodic table is available on the Chemistry Corner on Drexel Island (SLURL).

The table is similar to the pocket 3d table seen here:

Thanks to the ACS and Kate (Finola Graves in-world) for offering this and other freebies (including a lab coat) to all Second Life residents and thanks to Jean-Claude for hosting it all on Drexel Island.

Thanks. I've avoided Second Life so far. Now, how can I? I'm covering the periodic table with my 9 yr old (we're homeschooling) and that looks like one neat resource. :)

You see? It is our kids who will motivate us to start exploring new virtual worlds :)

I would be remiss in my duties if I did not mention this was sponsored by the American Chemical Society. :)
