This might be interesting for some people..

Source - Abstract:

A new electron microscope recently installed in Cornell's Duffield Hall is enabling scientists for the first time to form images that uniquely identify individual atoms in a crystal and see how those atoms bond to one another. And in living color.

Amazing! This should really give us a good opportunity for looking at protein crystals, in a much more perfect way than before. We should be able to map protein structers much faster than we are able to now, and at a greater accuracy.

Thats great news, want this as a present on next birthday.....

Will be great for nano-guys.
In biology - will settle for lower resolution,but in-vivo!!!!!! Wonder why this is impossible??? :-)
Then medicine will really get turbo-drive.
