This Picture of a Single Atom Just Won a Science Photography Prize

The universe is full of things that are either too big or too small to see with the naked eye. It takes powerful imaging technology — huge telescopes or electron microscopes — to convert these objects into size we can actually comprehend. That’s why this image taken by David Nadlinger from the University of Oxford is so impressive. He took a picture of an atom using an ordinary camera, and the result is mindblowing.

These pictures were created in a time well before the introduction of high tech machinery, the industrial revolution, or flying contraptions. The world was clean, and human impact on the environment and our own health was minimal. In the past 100 years alone, the way we’ve ‘progressed’ has harmed our planet and all life on it. A time for change is long overdue, and I’m sure if you asked some artists to depict what the human experience will be like 100 years from now, it wouldn’t be so pretty.
