O world invisible, we view thee
O world intangible, we touch thee
O world unknowable, we know thee
Francis Thompson

Have you ever tried to fit a jig-saw puzzle together? At first it appears to be a hopeless task-hundreds of different pieces, all shapes, all colors, all sizes. But as you study the pieces the puzzle beings to solve itself, and as the parts fall into proper place the picture becomes clear. Before we start a jig-saw puzzle, we know that all the pieces will fit, and that when we finish we will have a complete picture.

Yet how do you piece together a puzzle you cannot see? How is a student with a few science courses able to fit together the invisible pieces of information that make up scientific knowledge? NUCLEUS cannot answer these questions. NUCLEUS cannot explain why these certain students have chosen to begin the discovery of the invisible, the intangible, the unknowable while all other students have chosen not to doubt any information that they are taught.

Why then should we publish NUCLEUS? The answer lies in the realization that all the pieces of the scientific puzzle fit together. We know this before we start. Therefore, NUCLEUS is nothing more than a recruiting manual for those who are ready to begin the search for the unknowable.

We would like to thank Dean Donald Brundage, Mrs. lee Cogan, Mrs. Beatrice Bergen, and Mrs. Helen Hendricks for their countless hours of professional guidance. We would also like to thank Dr. Martin Kaplan for his advice in scientific problems.
