Electron microscopes are powerful. They are able to magnify up to 10,000,000x, and also show us details of objects and life around us that aren’t seen by the naked eye.
And as it turns out… When things can be magnified that much, they either get really fascinating or really terrifying. Either way, these are some of the most amazing things seen under electron microscopes….
