We show in an experiment that dissociation of state-selected neutral H3* molecules into three ground-state hydrogen atoms reveals highly structured maps of correlation in the motion of the three atoms. These maps provide a direct view of the internal molecular couplings which initiate dissociation. © 2004 The American Physical Society
