      It’s not that we’ll be printing “big” atoms — we’re aiming to use atoms (normal atoms) as the smallest building block for 3D printing. We won’t use a 3D printer anything like those currently available. It will look like the instrument in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ehw8PTA4QkE
