I can't believe no one has posted on this yet. I got this link from a friend's Facebook... ASPEX, a scanning electron microscope (SEM) Elemental Analysis company, is taking submissions from anyone for scanning. That's right...want to know what a marshmallow peep looks like under a SEM?

Cool, I say.

We demonstrate imaging of molecules with unprecedented atomic resolution by probing the short-range chemical forces with use of noncontact atomic force microscopy. The key step is functionalizing the microscope’s tip apex with suitable, atomically well-defined terminations, such as CO molecules. Science Magazine

I love that the Minnesota Microscopy Society's tagline is "Minnesota, Land of 10,000x". Har har.
