We knew this was coming: nano-sized soccer field

Just in time for the first all-European FIFA worldcup semi-finals in 24 years, German researchers at the University of Kaiserslautern built what they claim to be the the world's smallest soccer field. The field is 300 by 580 nanometers in size, which means that 20,000 little soccer fields could fit on the tip of a hair.

This latest iteration of "the world's smallest soccer field" dwarves previous attempts by researchers at the University of Chemnitz and the University of Bochum ... no pun intended.
