    Without Science, we would never see the true beauty of Nature! -- These microscopic images allow us to see things from a new and unfamiliar perspective. By magnifying up to 300 times, and focusing on the smallest details of the world, we’re able to see in clarity the smallest, most miniscule realms of reality. And who would ever expect that it could be this beautiful?
