Invisible Kingdom: All About My Microbes
MUSE January 2018
Meet the magnificent microbe! The microscopic world of microbes is fascinating and this edition of MUSE magazine takes you on a tour of all the amazing places you can find them: from inside your intestines to outer-space to how they can shed insights on life 5,300 years ago.
Ew gross! Germs! But… actually, germs (or microbes) are not always bad. Discover how some microbes are good for you, all the things we can learn from studying microbes, and some of the amazing places microbes can be found. From articles about the history of how microbes were first discovered, to how we use them to catch criminals, to the microbe karaoke playlist, kids (and parents) will discover how much more there is in the world than meets the eye!
