A friend of ours made a movie that will be in theaters this September (A Strange Brand of Happy. Go see it!) A little while ago an image appeared on the Facebook page for that movie that I really thought was the work of Photoshop.
“That can’t be real!” I thought. But a quick Google search proved otherwise.
That got me thinking. I just love seeing this crazy stuff that exists in our world that we never see. God made entire worlds and galaxies that, without the help of ridiculously powerful technologies, are just tiny lights in our sky—if even that!
In the other direction, to the infinitesimal, there is unseen beauty, intricate detail, and even some things that will light your face with an smile of “Wow!”
I included links at the end of this post to the source of these images, and a few sites that include more.
So take a moment today and enjoy the amazing beauty of the worlds what we never see. Incredible!
Really neat microscopic images:
Found across the web…
Cross-section of Marram Grass
Bluebottle Fly Maggot
Or… microscopic walrus?
I love the intricate detail.
No wonder we don’t want them to bite!
Um… it doesn’t look human to me??
Incredible. Like fiber-optics, but much more impressive.
Wonderfully made. And blueprint for future buildings?
Lens of the Eye
Not my favorite creature, but an amazing view of it.
The Inner Life of the Cell
(This is not by Steve Gschmeissner, but it is another fascinating animation of what goes in inside ONE cell! There are over 100 trillion in the human body!)
