And Then There Was Nano, Smallest Bible in the World

And Then There Was Nano bible

 

On the occasion of the Israel Museum’s 50th anniversary, a new exhibition space in the Shrine of the Book is inaugurated with this display of a cutting-edge version of the Bible – a gilt nano chip the size of a sugar grain, on which the entire Bible is inscribed. Illustrating the power of nanotechnology, this high-tech miracle was created in the laboratories of Haifa’s Technion Institute by means of a technique recalling stone engraving.

The text engraved on the chip needs to be magnified 10, 000 times in order to be legible. The exhibition takes the Book of Books on a journey from antiquity to the present – from the 2, 000-year-old Dead Sea Scrolls to the 21st-century Nano Bible.
