Okay, this is kind of a contest. Name the something nano-sized you would like to see a picture of. I will consider all the submitted ideas, and scan the object, that would make the coolest picture, for all to see.

Why am I doing this? Well, I want to have a cool SEM picture (that I scanned) to put on my personal website, but it seems like all of the good ideas have already been taken by others (ant faces, embryos, etc).

Much obliged amigos.

I saw some neat pictures of the HIV virus that they had made with heroic x-ray diffraction methods (got a cristalized sample of the virus invasding a cell and used techniques unbelieveably beyond what was good work in my old day). They should be somewhere on the web and they are really cool; the virus reminds me of some old bravo flashing a fancy sword in your face with one hand while he stabs you from under his cloak with the other.
