Guess What This Is…

These are 3-D Body images.

“Almost all Images captured by the scanning electron microscope (SEM), which is a type of electron microscope that uses a beam of high-energy electrons to scan surfaces of images. The electron beam of SEM relates with particles near or on the surface of the sample to be displayed, resulting in a high-resolution 3D image. Magnification levels from x 25 to about x 250,000. Amazingly detailed from 1 to 5 nm in size can be detected.”

So cool… can you guess what these are?  Hold your mouse over the image to find out the answer (and click on the pictures to see even more)…  (via Bits & Pieces)
