Everybody save Quarson knew that stars were the smallest possible particle.

"Not so," said Quarson. "Look, things still smaller exist." He called them planets. Photographed under microscopy, none could doubt their existence.

But were these planets divisible? "We cannot know," said Quarson, "unless we smash them together."

So he built a collider, accelerating planets by gravity around a central sun. He shot another travelling in the opposite direction, to see what would happen when the two destroyed each other.

He photographed the bits spiraling into space, and the single moon diving into the sun.

"What could be smaller?" Quarson mused.
