    Travel inside bugs: A dramatization for the uninformed. “Please join me in my nano space-craft, which allows us to travel into the Nano World. An incredible Space, where some objects are a millionth of a millimetre small. With my nano space-craft, we can travel into microbial cells, which may be as small as one-thousandth of a millimetre. And yes, there is action and adventure. You see, we have to blast our way open with Argon gas. BOOM! BOOM! BOOM! Once there we will find a fascinating world where atoms become visible in different colours.” Want to hear more?
