That's the tiniest snowman in the world. It was made from microscopic tin beads, by researchers at the National Physical Laboratory.

Its the world’s smallest 'snowman', measuring about a fifth of the width of a human hair.

It is the world's smallest snowman constructed from two tin beads that are used to calibrate an electron microscope astigmatism at the National Physical Laboratory in London.

Hey Mike. I believe that's the world's smallest snowman (though it looks like it's actually made out of tin), and is 1/5 the width of a human hair.

Mike, it's the world's smallest snowman, built by the National Physical Laboratory out of two of the tin nano particle beads that are usually used to calibrate electron microscope lenses. It measures just 0.01mm (1/5 the width of human hair).

David Cox from the National Physical Laboratories in the UK built a ’snowman’ (Really a tinman - this must be Oz!) which was just 10 microns (0.01mm) in diameter out of two tin beads bonded together with platinum. The face of the snowman was carved using an ion beam, and the nose (just 1 micron across) was made of platinum deposited using a similar ion beam. Cox even simulated a snowy landscape using blue light.

CNN played this on Sunday morning, it is a nano-snowman, offered as the smallest in the world, like, what did they say now, a 1/100 of a human hair [???] = whatever.
