The World in Close-Up

Thursday July 11, 2019 Written by kane

If it holds that the world gets more fascinating the closer you get to it, then sputter-coating something in gold, bombarding it with electrons from a lanthanum hexaboride cathode and placing it under an electron microscope is the apex of the fascinating arts.

And there are few better digests of the art than Steve Gschmeissner’s collection of botanical, entomological, mineralogical and miscellaneological images collected at The World Close Up. Take a real good, real close look at science in service of aesthetics. Looks good, don’t it?
