What's this website about? ("nucleus layered view")

  1. Jan 21, 2016 #1
    Hello, I happened to randomly come upon a website showing some interesting images of the nucleus of different atoms in a layered format I've never seen before [external link redacted]. In fact, when I googled "nucleus layered view", a term found on the website, it only had similar image references to this website. Just curious what this is about if anyone knows.

    Hard to tell if this is pseudoscience or just silly, as other information on the site appears correct. But the nucleus does not have such a "layered structure."

    I've redacted to link in the OP as this is not useful to learn about nuclear physics.

    Thank you, having looked a bit more, it looks like some type of game where you build atomic nuclei...fun!

    Perhaps it refers to the shell model? As in "shell" being treated as a "layer"?
