It goes like this: I knew I wanted an atom that looked like it was made out of food as the logo for my new tour, Eat Your Science. My prop guy Todd asked, “Why not just make if from food?” I said it was impossible. So he froze peas, drilled them out, cooked spaghetti and dried it on a template. He then strung them together and mounted the resulting electrons and orbits around an actual meatball nucleus on an actual fork. So…Todd proved me wrong.
