Herpes Simplex Capsid 800k x magnification

Herpes Simplex Capsid 800k x magnification 3d printed Art Mathematical Art
This is a three-dimensional reconstruction of a Herpes Simplex Virus capsid, solved by cryo-electron microscopy. It is therefore an exact scale model of the virus capsid (approximately 800,000 x)
cm: 9.984 w x 9.972 d x 9.974 h
in: 3.931 w x 3.926 d x 3.927 h


I finally got around to ordering this in the larger size. It's a great teaching aid I find students really grasp the symmetry of a virus particle when they can hold it in their hand. In this image our electron microscope can be seen in the background.
