Yes, so I beaded ethane. Okay, I beaded a model of an ethane molecule using cubic super right angle weave, attached via the corners of each cube. Ethane was first synthetically created in 1834 by Michael Faraday. This beaded molecule was created by me last week.
I think my beaded model is something in between the "ball and stick" model above and the "space filling" model below, but a bit more ball and stick, since I added a round of RAW between the molecules to attach them together.
