Caption: Animation of a zoom into one of the quarks in the proton in a hydrogen atom nucleus. Protons are made up of three quarks, two up and one down, which have complementary colour charge (red, green and blue) and are bound together by the strong nuclear force, mediated by the exchange of gluons (small sticks between the quarks).
