Since the invention of microscope in the late 1500s, we have discovered answers to cure polio, Asthma, Flu, and many other diseases.With microscope, knowledge of science is expanding and new discoveries invented to ease our life.
Microscope itself has its own science and it develops every year. Today, we have the most advance, the strongest, the biggest and the most expensive microscope called Diamond synchrotron microscope.
The microscope is located in Oxfordshire, England.It is currently recorded as the most powerful microscope on earth because it can produces radiation beam that has particles that can accelerated up to 600.000.000 miles per hour.It is 10 billion times brighter than the sun and can be used to read ancient fragile text or script without touching or opening it. It works just like an X-Ray microscope but with a bigger power.
The size of Diamond synchrotron is 5 time soccer field and it is facilitated with a sub-atomic particle accelerator, a linac and a circular booster synchrotron. Total construction cost to build the microscope is $415 million-$500 million and the funding was sponsored by the British government and the Wellcome Trust. There are no other microscope in the world which is more expensive than this one.
The expensive microscope is used for medical/bio medical research center, science research, and AIDS treatments center. The Diamond synchrotron is operated since January 2007 and it works 24 hours a day.
