MICROSCOPIC UNIVERSES


10.000 x. Microorganisms augmented 10.000 times

As the power of the optical instruments we use to see these organisms increases, new, complex living worlds come into view. Both traditional optical devices and more recently, scanning optical and electron instruments, have helped us travel further into these invisible, unknown worlds, which are nevertheless home to a myriad of complex life forms.
We can now enter these hidden worlds, discovering these organisms thanks to increasingly powerful optical devices. With magnifications ranging from 500 + to that which cannot be measured using traditional optical systems alone.
