Scientists Make Microscopic Bowl of Noodles
RENEE MONTAGNE, host:
Good morning, I'm Renee Montagne.
Japanese scientists have made it more difficult to watch what you eat. They created a ramen bowl so small, it can only be seen with a microscope. It's only one-thousandth of a millimeter in diameter. That's much thinner than a human hair. The engineers carved the bowl out of microscopic nanotubes and put a microscopic serving of noodles inside. Then they took a picture so you can feast your eyes on the tiny meal. It's MORNING EDITION.
