Scientists at IBM have just unveiled the world's smallest stop-motion film — certified by Guinness — one made by moving individual atoms. What you're seeing is 100 million times bigger than the original elements.
For Star Trek fans, the team also unveiled several franchise-inspired images made with atoms, including the USS Enterprise, the famous logo and the "live long and prosper" sign.
Why? To prove that they can and in the process show off the fun side of science, according to Andreas Heinrich, a principal investigator at IBM Research in California who led the effort.
"We think that that's exciting and that will drive normal people's interest in (asking) what is this. What are atoms? Why are we here? What happened? All of these questions that we want people to ask," he told NBC News.
