Summary

Take a fantastic journey through the human body, thanks to the magic of technology and the most spectacular microscopic images ever created. These pictures, as beautiful as any art, provide a window into the wonder of our brains, the work of a white blood cell, the power of hormones, the tiny hairs on our arms, the movement of human cancer cells, the jagged edges of caffeine crystals, and more. Enjoy the collection purely as a visual voyage or as a means of understanding the science behind the images—which all include the scale of the photography as well as the scientific details in layman's terms.
