Electron Microscope

Calcium Phosphate Crystal
Dave sent me these pictures of ordinary objects magnified many times by an electron microscope.  When I was taking Biology in high school our class took a trip to Wayne State University and saw the Gross Anatomy Lab and the electron microscope among other things.  I was fascinated!  These images were a great reminder of that day decades ago and how much the experience encouraged my interest in science.
