Most of you will have heard about the recent accomplishment at the IBM Zürich labs, using an atomic force microscope with unprecedented resolution. They've imaged individual molecules so well that the atoms and bonds are alarmingly clear. I thought I'd put up one of the less-used images from the paper - here are some pentacene molecules (five fused benzene rings) sitting around on a surface. Not a simulation, not a model: real molecules. It gives me a slight chill, to tell you the truth.
