It's crazy to think about how big our universe is, literally unimaginable.  What's crazier is that as physically large as space is (over 28 billion light years in diameter), there are tiny things going on all around us, so much smaller than we realize.  In these pictures, we get a look at a world that exists below most people's conscious thoughts.  At least, below mine, I can't say I spend very much time trying to imagine what it's like to be a bug or a tiny drop of dew. Yet, at these tiny levels of existence, important things happen. Sweat glands, a scratch on a quarter, the roughness of a cat's tongue, all of these are visible at this scale and stunningly beautiful.
