Record breaking ULTRA high res photo of NMM 3328 is STUNNING

Micrometeorite NMM 3328 is a scoriaceous type with large vesicles from degassing. The very small stone measures a mere 0.15 mm and has a partial magnetite rim, which gives the surface a shiny metallic luster. Note the view inside the large vesicle; large magnetite crystals.

At the same time this is a record breaking photo! The original full size of the picture is 125 x 125 cm, which is more than 8,000 times magnification. This is possibly the largest magnification in color in the world!

Jan Braly Kihle and I are very happy about this result, and hope to be able to create a series of ultra-high magnification stardust photos for a new exhibition.

Meanwhile, enjoy!

If you’d like to see what Jan and I do behind the scenes to create these extraordinary photos, please join us on Tuesdays at 7 pm Oslo time on Twitch!

Yours truly,

Jon Larsen
