I have always been intrigued by the microscopic world. If anyone knows a little bit about chemistry, they might get as excited as I did when I saw this picture. This is the very first picture ever taken of a molecule! It's name is pentacene. Unfortunately, each circle on there isn't an individual atom, rather an aromatic ring. Each ring is composed of 6 carbon atoms and 6 hydrogen atoms bonded to them. I won't go any further into explaining it, just look it up yourself. Super cool nonetheless!
