The Nano World — Microscopes Show Us the Ants’ Willie Wonka Land

Biology is amazing. Years ago, Gary Greenberg invented some 3D microscopes. He’s put them to good use, looking at micrometeorites, moon dust, bugs’ eyes, pollen grains, and living cells.

In this video from TEDxMaui, Greenberg shows some beautiful images of the small-scale world, the nano world. Every phase of this talk is engaging and visually irresistible.

Happy Friday!
