Dead Simple Way To See Atomic Structure

In the article, they used a sheet of carbon one atom thick to view how water sticks to every surface. Heath, a professor of chemestry in California, and his colleagues found a way to pin down moving molecules by using Graphene (it's like chicken wire on an atomic scale). They found that is hugged the water molecules so tightly that they could see the atomic structure. The researchers have tested many other molecules and haven't found one that Graphene does not work on.
