Some amazing images from the world of the electron microscope-
I'll never look at an ant the same again.

For visualizing the scale, most measurements below are in microns - one micron is a millionth of a meter - human hair is approximately 100 microns thick.

Truly amazing images presented here. It adds meaning to the old adage "There's more here than meets the eye". I tend to think of the greater universe but I often overlook the universe at the Quantum level.

Again, beautiful, thought provoking images.

Eeek!

"Wretched beasties moving about very nimbly"

This is what Anton van Leeuwenhoek said about the creatures he saw in his 1670s microscope. The "Father of Microbiology" made over 400 different types of microscopes and discovered bacteria and spermatozoa, among other things.... among many, many other things.
All these "beasties" live in enchanting world and can sometimes look very cute (witness waterbears) - and photographers keep discovering new angles and frontiers of their microcosm.

I like the first pic..the MicroObamas.

The pic even shows the tiny conductive hairs that tend to plauge microcircuits that cause unexplained failures in many devices.

Perhaps a message...potential unexplained failure.



Cheers!!!!

Waterbears/Moss Piglets:


Freeze them, boil them, dry them, expose them to open space & radiation - after 200 years they'll still be alive!

The amazing thing about these tiny, 1mm creatures is just how resilient they are to about everything. You can put them in space, in hot sea vents, and freeze them - no matter what you do, they'll survive.

This tungsten needle image is bonkers:



What you see is a tip of a needle: the small round objects are individual atoms.
