This late biochemist would do an extra two weeks of uninterrupted research in his lab during Christmas. In one of his sojourns, he gifted the world the first electron micrographs—in color. His method used to create them will dramatically advance cell imaging. Scientists use Electron Microscopy (EM) for magnifying objects up to 10 million times their original size. Read more [...]
