The Nanoscale Bible

I’m a bit loath to post another article on something to do with the Bible, after the flood of mostly offensive, illiterate and incomprehensible emails I got the last time I posted on the subject. However, needs must, and I think this is remarkable enough to post on. Researchers at Israel’s Institute of Technology, Technion, have enscribed the entire Hebrew Bible onto a silicon surface smaller than the head of a pin.

I could quip that, of course, the kerning’s all wrong but I suspect these letters were created by a process akin to dot-matrix printing. I think it’s amazing. Beat that, microfilm!
