for studying how life, in general,
can survive in a variety of extreme
environments on Earth and possibly
elsewhere in the solar system.

Developed in the 1950’s,
electron Microscopes use
beams of electrons Instead
of light to magnify objects. An electron microscope can clearly magnify a specimen more than 100,000 times their actual size. Unlike light microscopes they cannot be used to study living specimens. Specimens must be in a vacuum.
