X-ray Blast Produces a ‘Molecular Black Hole’

When researchers want to take pictures of very small things, like individual molecules, they have to get creative.

When scales shrink to seemingly imperceivable levels, images must be captured using indirect techniques that record how the subject being photographed interacts with its environment. One way to do this is by observing how a beam of particles disperses around the object. Working backward, researchers can then infer what the object in question looks like.
