    The cutting edge on the scissors is too large and blunt compared to an atom.

    Atoms take a special disassembly tool. then you can lay out all the tiny parts.

    This has nothing to do with astronomy and space. This is a physics question. And you can't do it because the blades aren't thin enough.

    Maybe they're not pinking shears. They work the best, ya know.
