Researcher Chris Supranowitz at the University of Rochester's The Insitute of Optics took the images, one assumes for his own nerdy amusement.

The next thing that came up in my RSS feeds after your post was this offer to have a free SEM image taken of anything you can think of!

"look the loud parts are farther apart!!"..
Imagine! A whole page on the American English Internet for this! I wonder what the Chinese Internet wastes its pages on! This or a similar shot can be found in most out of print high school texts from the 50's, 60's, and even Popular Science had a go at it! Don't bother to upgrade! The waste is done, So is America! Decades left in decadence, only decades!
i can imagine teenagers saying "huh? what's a record?"
