World's smallest Bible

by ARTiFactor on Dec. 24th, 2007

Israeli scientists have inscribed the entire Hebrew text of the Jewish Bible onto a space less than half the size of grain of sugar (0.01 square inch). The 300,000 word Bible was created by directing tiny particles (gallium ions) at gold plated silicon. The gold atoms are blasted off and expose the silicon layer underneath. The nanotechnology experts at the Technion institute in Haifa say the text measures less than 0.5 square millimeter (0.01 square inch) surface.
