The most beautiful thing in the world

Have you ever used the SEM for anything? I had the rare opportunity to use this incredible gift to humanity and wow. We zoomed into the teeth samples (simple turn of the knob) and I got goosebumps. I kept muttering: "This is the most beautiful thing I've ever seen." And the person who was running the machine looked at me like I was crazy.

But hello, take a look at this.

If this machine wasn't always booked solid for three weeks, I'd look at anything and everything. Microscopes are so wonderful.
