Caption: Atomium at night. This was the centrepiece of the 1958 World Exposition, held in Brussels, Belgium. It is 102 metres high & weighs 2400 metric tonnes. It represents the crystalline atomic lattice structure of iron. The architect, Andre Waterkeyn, designed the structure to symbolize the 20th century, in which the atom was fully mastered. Six of the spheres are accessible to the public.
