While this image may look like a creature from a science fiction movie, it's actually a hydrothermal worm marine organism viewed on an electron microscope from festival sponsor FEI Company, a world leader in the production and distribution of electron microscopes, including scanning electron microscopes (SEM), transmission electron microscopes (TEM), DualBeamâ¢Â instruments, and focused ion beam tools (FIB), for nanoscale research. See this recent Huffington Post article for more information on the image.
