With a scanning electron microscope (SEM), we can see life at 20,000x its actual size. This is fortunate, because the microscopic world is invisible to the naked eye. At Gettysburg College, I spent a year and a half learning how to photograph the miniature universe we never see. With the help of digital software, I was able to capture and colorize a number of specimens, and have since shared them through exhibits and libraries.
