The Beautiful Nano Details of Our World


Gary Greenberg

While it is commonly understood that there is much more to our world than can be seen with the unassisted human eye, we could all use reminders of the magnitude of this reality from time to time. This TED talk by Gary Greenberg offers a glimpse into the somewhat magical world of the microscopic. Through the use of 3D microscope photography, Greenberg reveals the hidden nature of sand, turning it from the seemingly ordinary into the vastly unique. Each beach and region of sand, from Maui to the Moon, is a catalog of its environment. This video is a great reminder that the created world truly is a beautiful and infinitely intricate place.

In what other seemingly ordinary places might we look for beauty?

What might the beauty of the world tell us about the character of God?
