      🙂 I love this question!! I would probably be a microscope, one of those fluorescent ones that helps produce beautiful pictures like this one which help us understand how cells in the eye work and how they go wrong in disease

      I’d be the Hubble telescope so I could see far out into space. If you want to learn more look at their website it’s really cool:

      I’d be the Large Hadron Collider, because it is one of the largest (and is the most expensive) piece of science equipment on the planet, which ironically has been constructed to study the absolute smallest particles in the universe. Physicists hope to use it to recreate conditions present in the universe at the time of the Big Bang, and to try and figure out what glues the universe together.
