Things That Are Cool

There's now a scanning tunneling electron microscope in my basement (well, more accurately, the basement of the house I live in. It's not my house, and hence not actually my basement). In my hands, I have a picture of graphite that was scanned today... You can see the individual atoms in the lattice.

Kewl.

The microscope is amazingly not big.
