The Nikon Small World photomicrography competition awards the most amazing microscopic photos of the year--and we are amazed every year. This year's winners feature a selection of insects, sand, and mouse nerves, all photographed from a disarmingly close distance.
Five amazing, clean technologies that will set us free, in this month's energy-focused issue. Also: how to build a better bomb detector, the robotic toys that are raising your children, a human catapult, the world's smallest arcade, and much more.
