Cell Size and Scale
The smallest objects that the unaided human eye can see are about 0.1 mm long. That means that under the right conditions, you might be able to see an ameoba proteus, a human egg, and a paramecium without using magnification. A magnifying glass can help you to see them more clearly, but they will still look tiny.
At Biocanvas, we think science is beautiful, and we think you should think so, too. Our mission is to provide a more approachable way for audiences to engage with science. By curating captivating science-as-art images, we hope to revitalize society’s knowledge of and passion for scientific endeavors.
