Behold the world’s smallest periodic table, a chart of the elements which fits on a single strand of hair.

This chart, created by the University of Nottingham’s Nanotechnology and Nanoscience Centre, is believed to be the smallest periodic table ever. Using focused ion beams, this document was shrunken to the smallest size ever and can only be seen under a very powerful microscope. Who knows what type of trends or technological advances will come after this new-found discovery!
