Micro and Nano Space Explorations

“Where the telescope ends the microscope begins. Which of the two has the grander view?” Victor Hugo (Les Miserables)

In this project virology, microbiology, immunology, physics, astronomy and educational expertise are being brought together to allow us to stand at the visible world interface between invisible worlds that can only be made visible with the proper tools for observation and analysis. Edwin Hubble, the American astronomer, observed that: “Equipped with our five senses - along with telescopes and microscopes and mass spectrometers and seismographs and magnetometers and particle accelerators and detectors sensitive to the entire electromagnetic spectrum - we explore the universe around us and call the adventure science.”.
