Tuesday TEA Time
Here are some links that you might enjoy 😁

A photo of a single atom. The dot in the center is an atom.
Science, a lot of times, gives us abstractions or equations so we can understand things we cannot see. Rarely do we ever get a chance to view something that was before impossible. This photo above is amazing. It’s the most exciting photo I’ve seen in a long time. That is an atom. Before this, atoms were invisible. Now, there it is.
This photo “won the overall prize in a national science photography competition, organised by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC)” and it deserves it. It’s beautiful.
David Nadlinger, explained how the photograph came about: “The idea of being able to see a single atom with the naked eye had struck me as a wonderfully direct and visceral bridge between the miniscule quantum world and our macroscopic reality. A back-of-the-envelope calculation showed the numbers to be on my side, and when I set off to the lab with camera and tripods one quiet Sunday afternoon, I was rewarded with this particular picture of a small, pale blue dot.”

Black Panther is breaking records and people seem to really be enjoying it. I haven’t had a chance to see it yet, but I really want to. Have you seen it? Did you enjoy it?
This Etsy shop of PDF templates to make awesome wall sculptures is great. I am considering trying one of these out.
These paintings by 0uizi are gorgeous. Found via Booooooom.
And finally these photos of a snowy Japan are so captivating. They really seem other-worldly. Found via a tweet.
