"2008" Brussels Remembers 1958

The Atomium is a monument built for Expo '58, the 1958 Brussels World's Fair.

Designed by André Waterkeyn, it is 102-metre (335-feet) tall, with nine steel spheres connected so that the whole forms the shape of a unit cell of an iron crystal magnified 165 billion times.
