Awesome 1-billionth-scale U.S.S. Enterprise model

Recommended Posts



There are no Star Trek fanatics like science geek Trekkers, and a couple in Japan have created what we think is the tiniest model of the starship Enterprise ever, above.

How tiny? Try 8.8 microns. That's about the size of a human red blood cell.

Here's what Screenrant said:

Back in 2003, Takayuki Hoshino and Shinji Matsui of the Himeji Institute of Technology in Japan created a one-of-a-kind scale model of the Star Trek Starship Enterprise NCC-1701D.

What made the model so unique? It was made of phenanthrene gas and it was exactly 8.8 microns long.

For a sense of scale, one micron is 1,000th of a millimeter.

How cool is that? Only question is, how do you display it?

My question is: how the fuck did he make it?

That is awesome! :D It looks like they made it out of carbon nanotubes? O_O I don't know how they do it, but I've seen a special about carbon were they were able to grow a small company logo and mini towers out of carbon nanotubes after they put a specially coated material into a gas chamber.
