World's Smallest Snowman!

This is apparently the world’s smallest snowman, a tiny 2.7 microns (0.0027 millimeters) high. It was made by scientists at the Western University’s Nanofabrication Facility in Ontario, Canada. Pictures were posted on their Tumblr page.

Three 0.9-micron silica spheres were placed on top of each other to make the body of the snowman, while its eyes and smile were cut with a focused ion beam. Arms and a pointy nose were also added, made from platinum. For comparison, a human hair is about 75 microns (0.075 millimeters) thick.
