First 'look' at an electron

I put the word "look" in quotes because how do you call visualizing a probability cloud looking?

A post earlier this month featuring the shadow of an atom plays nicely with this electron construct.

Greg, aren't all electrons identical? Interchangeable? After all, good girls go to heaven, but electrons... well, they go everywhere.

I remember shells/orbitals as well from chemistry: they CONTAINED electrons.

This is one of those electrons, its probability clouds visualized.

Am I confused or ????

What atom are we looking at? I remember shells from chemistry, not sure if they're still relevent. It sort of looks like shells.
