As odd as it sounds researchers have had microscoptic images of single atoms since the 1970's but could not been able to image an single molecule until now as they finally imaged a Pentacene molecule.

I think it is saying... Wait a second... Oh! It's "Cheeeese."

Truly amazing. I actually wasn't aware that single atoms had been viewed, either.

What is fascinating about the structure of the molecules is the hexagonal form they take. I've been a way for several days at a science conference outside the city of Malmö. Sweden where the number one topic, "water", was the main subject of all speakers and conversation. The Institute of Ecological Technology sponsored the event and scientist and researchers came from all over Europe and the United States.

Most of the studies of the many and unusual phenomena involving water are done around the research and theories of Viktor Schauberger. Water itself in a healthy state can and does form hexagonal structures, much like crystalized ice of snowflakes. This structural phenomena does'nt necessarily have to be ice to be structured as such. Most healthy springs in nature have these numerous hexagonal, though the water itself is fluid. These interesting structures are highly energized and emit a small electrical charge. This could explain many of the health benefits of claimed by many in regards legends of some spring water around the world. Nothing magical about it, just simple physics. It should also be noted that cold is not necessarily the trigger for forming crystaline structural arangements in water. Thermal Hot Springs also contain these hexagonal structures of water molecules. Various componants seem to make this happen. Two major componants are the negative electrical charge of the earth itself and vortex and swirling movement of water can cause this.

Most of our conference centered around physics and chemistry. However, getting back on topic here, take a look at this illustration of oil or petroleum molecules and their nature of forming the same identical hexagonal molecules seen in the articles photo and the fascinating response to contact with water.
