Science is a great tool for mankind to move forward, solving the complex fundamental problems. Sometimes, however, scientists “have fun” and create crazy things. For example, scientists have built a gingerbread house, thinner hair.
What is known about the development
To demonstrate the capabilities of modern science officer of the Canadian centre for electron microscopy at McMaster University – Travis Casagrande created a miniature gingerbread house.

To demonstrate enthusiast used an electron microscope that uses an electron beam and electromagnetic lenses. The length of its waves is about 100 thousand times smaller than visible light, allowing you to get a much greater increase.
I think that such projects are of scientific interest. I believe that for children, and for adults it is important to show an interest in science. The study of how this was done, increases scientific literacy, which allows everyone to choose the best solution
– said the scientist.
House cut out of silicone and it stands for “huge” snowman, whose size barely exceeds the thickness of a human hair.

A comparison of the size of the house and hair
The inscriptions on the house and decorations were created directional beams of gallium ions, which acted like a sandblaster. The gingerbread house was the smallest in the world, breaking the record of the French predecessor twice.
