This is a small gigapan (48 pictures) of a piece of lichen. This lichen is magnified 300x using a scanning electron microscope. Lichen is an interesting organism, it is a mixture between a fungus and an algae which can withstand extreme environments. The Spanish have exposed lichen to the vacuum of space and shown that it survived.
The lichen was given to us to image by Thomas Beer a PhD student from Germany.
This Gigapan is part of the NanoGigaPan project. Which is working to take high resolution images of very small things.
