Public access scanning electron microscope

Have you ever thought to yourself “Hey, I wonder what that would look like under a scanning electron microscope”? Well, apparently now you can find out. The guys at Aspex Corporation (a company based in Pennsylvania) are apparently so bored that they’re offering put anything you send to them under an electron microscope and send you a report afterwards. Check out the website above for the submission form and pretty pictures.

I just like the idea that we live in such an age where any one with enough money for postage can have access to an electron microscope. Science is goddamn awesome.
