@14: Speaking of inaccurate visualizations, the planetary model of atoms is still infesting museums and videos. There's always a nucleus made of little spheres about a thousand times larger than it really is relative to the electron cloud, and the cloud itself is represented as a bunch of tiny bb's zipping around in perfect circles. It was a reasonable first attempt but has been superseded for so long there's no excuse for it any more!
