Send us your questions

Some of our visitors have sent emails with interesting questions, we decided to start having a space to answer them. In this space the blog "Restless Minds" will answer all questions you send us
Send us your question for the email: Restless Minds.

Science progress affects our daily life and "to know" means you are going to chose right, because it allows you to form your own opinion on scientific everyday issues. On the other hand, having an elegant and harmonious vision of the world where we live in leads to a feeling of intellectual satisfaction.
We believe this kind of scientific day to day knowledge should be encouraged from an early age, and that's why this project was born: science, culture, knowledge, crafts for your restless mind.

Electron microscopy

On March 9, 1931, the german physicist Ernst Ruska and his team, built the first electron microscope, an instrument able to magnify images of organic molecules up to 500,000 times. 
The electron microscope forms the image by emitting electrons.

Due to his amplifying capacity, this instrument produces amazing images of surrounding micro-world.  
Aside the obviouse scientific advances this tool provided, noone is immune to the beauty of the images it produces, finally revealing the symmetry and balance of all forms that we do not see but somehow we know "it's there".
Today we bring you some of these images:
