Gigapixel Image of an Ant

I love this .28 Gigapixel image, formed by stitching together 40 scanning electron microscopy images of an ant. This particular image is part of the NanoGigaPan project.

It would be extremely cool to use this technology stitch together multiple hi-res medical images.

Hat tip to John Gruber of Daring Fireball, who puts it thusly:
The intersection of horrifying and wonderful.
