This is a photo of an atom
· · Nov 19, 2020 ·

Normally you can't see an atom, even with the most powerful microscopes. But in this award-winning photo by David Nadlinger you can actually look at a single atom with your own little ojos!

It's the faint blue dot at the very center of the photo (you might need to pinch and zoom if you're on a phone).

That's a single strontium atom which has been embedded inside a strong electric field and hit with a bunch of lasers causing it to light up.

That's the glory of God in creation on display.

"For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse."

– Romans 1:20
