Touring Human Tissues through An Electron Scanning Microscope

The microscopic world is one that can appear to be alien and distant from many people. Whether we accept it or not, Microorganisms are an ever present part of our lives.
Dee Breger, a scientific artist, specializes in imaging using the scanning electron microscope and gets to see the microscopic (nanoscopic?) world on a daily basis. Here’s a five minute presentation that she gave at TED Education showing some of the more fascinating images she took of the human body at the highest resolutions available.
The Images bring us closer to understanding the advances in science and technology and also to seeing the overall importance of acknowledging the importance of Microtechnology in science.
When we visualise the wonders of micro-organisms and the body and imagine for a fleeting moment the important role that micro-organisms play in our lives from digestion to physiology as well as aesthetic general health, it becomes even more imperative that we pay attention to and invest in technologies that bring us closer to unravelling the science of the human body.
