Researchers from a wide variety of disciplines use microscopes to explore inner space at the micro, nano and atomic levels. Each image, movie and sculpture was created on a quest for knowledge and reveals a unique story. Learn how advanced microscopy gives insights into clever natural structures, sustainable future materials, advances in healthcare and food security.
All the images come from the Microscopy Australia's facilities – a national network of university-based microscopy labs collaborating to enable research at the micro, nano and atomic scales. From mining to medicine, agriculture to energy, microscopy enables Australian innovation.
Incredible Inner Space is a touring exhibition and is currently looking for a new home. If you are interested in hosting this 28-piece exhibit in your local gallery or institution, please contact Dr Jenny Whiting at Microscopy Australia.
Over 400,000 people of all ages have already enjoyed this exhibition – in major Australian cities and in the USA in 2015 at the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry and at the Australian Embassy in Washington DC in 2017.
