Artist Michael Oliveri has teamed up with a group of nano scientists at the University of Georgia to create these ghostly images, strangely reminiscent of Earthly landscapes. He writes:
Using current photographic technology and a Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) I have created grand scale micrograph interpretations of their research. In this series I selected perspectives of unusual microscopic happenings within the actual nano structure samples to blur scale into seemingly familiar human settings.
They’re pretty neat. Check ’em out.

Just a sampling of some interesting tabs I have open right now.
1. Beautiful images of the thousands of new species recently discovered on a little island in the Republic of Vanatu.
2. A 2700-year-old marijuana stash has been discovered.
3. Gorgeous 1800s toolchest. Wow! It was made by a piano- and organ-maker named Studley, to hold everything the traveling organ-tuner might ever need.
