World's Smallest Millennium Falcon


Millennium Falcon


A scale model of the Millennium Falcon was produced recently in the NUANCE Center at Northwestern University by Eric Miller, Microscopy & Imaging Specialist. It was constructed out of Platinum on a Silicon substrate and measures only 19.5 micrometers in length, which makes it 1:1,800,000 scale. It was built in an FEI Helios Focused Ion Beam microscope, which allows for the deposition and milling away of material.
