What if you could shrink yourself down to the size of 1 mm (0.04 in), about the size of a frog's egg? Actually no, there too many creepy crawly predators, so let’s go smaller. What if you shrunk to 10 micrometers (0.0004 in), the size of an animal cell? That's pretty cool, but I think we can go even smaller. How about 100 nanometers (0.000004 in), the size of a virus? That’s better, but we're not in the mood to be swallowed by white blood cells. So let's keep going. What if you shrunk to 1 angström, the size of the atom?
