Like the rest of the pages by the same authors, this page features clear
explanations, good graphics, and informative applets. One of the applets loaded
very slowly, and sometimes the explanations put the cart before the horse
(radioactive particle decay is created to satisfy the isotope charts, rather
than stating that the isotope charts were created to explain radioactive decay).
