AI: Macro Vs Micro

Telescopes allowed us to see deep into space, letting us see galaxies and nebulae of incredible beauty. Microscopes have allowed us to see things too small to be imagined in incredible detail.

Both have given us stunning images of our universe that we couldn’t possibly have seen without them, but which do you prefer?

Question: Which do you prefer, the images from telescopy or microscopy? Which is of more artistic value? Which is of more scientific value?

The ART Inquisition (or AI) is a question posed to you, the Mad Art Lab community. Look for it to appear Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at 3pm ET.
