Under Electron Microscope

All the common objects are kinda boring when you look at them, but the situation changes when an awesome Electron Microscope comes in the scene. I mean, take a look at the Salt and pepper image. Isn’t it cool? Is like you’re eating massive stones and pieces of wood. Next, check out the 50x zoom of human eyelash hairs image. Oh my god, we have some ugly eyelashes! Anyway, in this article you can see amazing super zoomed images that look from another planet.

Blood clot crystals. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of crystals of albumin from a blood clot. Albumin is the most abundant protein in the blood plasma. When the skin is cut, small blood vessels are ruptured, releasing blood. Some proteins in the blood plasma (such as albumin) harden in the air to form crystals (pink) over the wound.

Ruptured capillary. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a red blood cell squeezing out of a torn capillary. A capillary is the smallest type of blood vessel, often only just large enough for red blood cells to pass through. Red blood cells (erythrocytes) are biconcave, disc-shaped cells that transport oxygen from the lungs to body cells.

Instant coffee granule, coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM). Instant coffee is a dried aqueous solution of roasted coffee. The drying process produces hollow particles of low density by either spray-drying or freeze-drying. Both processes avoid nutritional and functional damage and the resulting beverage usually contains 400 grams of coffee per litre. Magnification x26 at 10cm wide.
