Description:  This composite image shows two sequences of events. The horizontal dots at the top of the image show a Bose-Einstein condensate, which is a frozen cloud of atoms that move in lockstep, moving 1.6 millimeters across the bottom surface of a chip. The vertical dots on the right show the condensate falling and dissipating.
