Microscopic alien-like organism discovered

This is how the unseen organism look alike when exposes in our naked eye using the powerful electron microscope. We have never seen that kind of specie of our entire lives. But witnessing this little guy makes us in state of shock. Opening its mouth with lots of sharp teeth align in one direction like the mouth of a dinosaur. But where are the eyes? The body was wrapped with cotton skin, and absence of face formation, simply an opening of its mouth dominates the facial expression. You cannot tell how weird the creature is but will make you speechless.

In our own way of understanding, this alien inhabited our world. There are certain theories that single-celled animals first started to rise on earth through meteors invasion. Then, here comes this weird individual discovered unexpectedly in our own world crawling anywhere.

We sometimes think that a spaceship landed on Earth and carrying them unintentionally without the knowledge that they shipped out from their planet, and fall accidentally on the land. Then maybe they started multiplying as they love living in our own atmosphere.

We have seen movies making aliens as the villain putting a small dose of trauma in our mind. Do they exist?  But when we saw that little wiggler, it seems we have our own aliens invading our own planet or invading our own body.

The discovery blamed on  modern microscopes that have come a long way since the days of Hooke and van Leeuwenhoek. “Nobody’s looking with their eye anymore — everything’s digital,” said biophysicist David Piston of Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee.

Neuroscientists often use confocal microscopy to visualize activities at the synapses between neurons. They can even look at living slices of an animal’s brain, Piston said.

Electron microscopes provide a stunning level of detail that reveals fine structures. Scientists have used these microscopes to create the iconic close-up images of red blood cells or human hairs.

But ultimately, microscopy’s importance lies in the dynamics of living cells, Piston said. “The ability to look at how things move around will really revolution how we think about cells.”
