Diamonds and graphite: identical carbon atoms connected differently, with drastically different results. One is the clearest, hardest substance on Earth, the other best known as the dark, soft material in pencils. If this vast difference does not come from the atoms themselves, it must be how they're structured. Does society work the same way? Produced with Saint Mary's University of Minnesota.
