This week’s story, Atomic Distances, takes us to a beach in Florida where an electrician watches over a group of partyers. He became addicted to saving people in mortal circumstances after trying to revive a colleague. That’s when he discovered the space separating life and death is measured in angstroms, or the width of atoms. And, that traversing those distances releases potent energy. Rip currents, as he notes, are killers.
