Hydrothermal Worm Viewed Under An Electron Microscope
This isn't a monster from a movie. It's real and it's a photo of a hydrothermal worm magnified more than 500 times. The picture was taken using an FEI Quanta SEM electron microscope and submitted to the FEI gallery by Philippe Crassous. But, you won't have to worry about seeing the creature in your backyard. Hydrothermal worms are deep sea creatures smaller than some bacterium and are largely found near hydrothermal vents in the ocean.
