The Smallest Snowman in the World (2 pics)

Posted in Pictures   7 Dec 2009   / 3059 views

Here’s the smallest snowman in the world that looks like two scoops of ice scream and its size is only of one fifth of the width of a strand of hair!
This cute snowman was created by the British National Physical Laboratory using tools destined for manipulating nano-particles. They welded the snowman together out of two tiny tin beads using small deposits of platinum and a focused ion beam carved its eyes, smile and put in place its platinum nose.

Then it was magnified in a blue light and gave this image of almost a real snowman :)
