Scientists have done some amazing things over the course of history, but apparently they had a little too much time on their hands the day they created this little doodad.  What looks to be an interesting image of a snowman is not ordinary ball of snow.  The snowman is constructed of two very, very small tin beads that are usually used to calibrate electron microscope lenses.  

The amazing part of the snowman is its size; just 0.01mm across, or one fifth the width of a human hair.  The National Physical Laboratory was kind enough to construct the tiny snowman for all to see.  To get a feel for the actual size of this snowman, watch the video below:
