Isotopic Masses, Fundamental Constant Groups, World Education, Gravitational Fuels https://youtu.be/WxiJ320pQJI I start by showing how bad PDF is for sharing data. I am trying to get a simple table of isotopic masses to check the nuclear data tables. And it is stored in terrible form. I had to copy and paste and edit to get
