On intel atom machine, is this perfectly normal? I thought I'd see 2 core temps - Core 0 and Core 1

$ sensors
Adapter: Virtual device
temp1:        +68.0°C  (crit = +99.0°C)

Adapter: ISA adapter
Core 0:       +55.0°C  (crit = +100.0°C)

Which CPU exactly is it? Some older Atom CPUs are single core, but most all new ones are dual core.

Check this Wikipedia entry for a list of all the Atom processors and what features they support.
