The recipe for Dr Walsh

I've just posted a video from our recent trip to Dublin.

Midway through the video (below), Dr Darren Walsh uses a clever contraption to count the atoms in his body (based on his weight).

A few people have asked to see the full details in the list.

Dr Walsh has kindly supplied it.
