    As I understand it the original billion was a million millions, but we have gone the American way and now recognize a billion as a thousnd millions.

    Correct. It's called the "short scale".

    Space is mind boggling. To think our own galaxy is unfathomably massive and on these pictures it just appears as a speck. I am often in total awe learning about it.
    If you're reading a thread I've created it's probably to do with something breaking or not going to plan again.

    I used to have to teach this stuff to 15 yr olds, they just couldn't comprehend the scale of it and took it all for granted. Occasionally, one of the students would latch on to it and it made it all worth while. The Eureka moment!

     Yes
    You're missing it. The classical electron radius is in there at 10E-14 m. However this is just one measure of the electron's 'size'. You are also right in that, as with any particle sufficiently small that quantum effects are dominant, an electron will have a probability distribution in space which basically describes the likelihood of observing it at any particular point. So if it's bound to a proton in a hydrogen atom, for example, there's a small region around the proton within which the chances of finding it are quite large. A 'long way' from the proton the chances are very small. This is where your 'cloud of uncertainty' image is useful. In yet another sense though an electron appears to be structureless and can be regarded as point-like, i.e. infinitesimally small. The 'size' you pick should really depend on what you want to do with the information once you've got it.

    VB

    That 'Scale of the Universe' thing is excellent though. It hadn't occurred to me that the moon is only about the same size as the USA. I drove across the USA once. OK, it was down at the bottom where it's a bit narrower. But if you only stop for fast food and gas you can do San Diego to Houston in under 24 hours.

    I like this phrase very much indeed.
