The Nano Bible

“Using an ion beam to create a Nano Bible may sound like the stuff of science fiction, but that’s exactly how scientists have created the world’s smallest Bible!”
The 1.2 million letters of the Old Testament are on a disk no larger than the head of a pin!—a Nano Bible that requires an electron microscope in order to read it—the font magnified about 10,000 times.
The Nano Bible was first displayed in the Israel Museum—right next to the Dead Sea Scrolls—crossing timelines of a text in scrolls that are over 2,000 years old!
The Nano Bible presents the Hebrew Bible in a new way, bringing together ancient words of an unchanging text into a digital format that is always changing!
Engage with the Bible—in its timeless history and impact!
Brought to you by museum of the Bible.
