The Nobel Prize in has gone to three scientists for their with molecules. The scientists will share the $1,090,000 . They found a way of taking photos of molecules. Molecules are the building blocks in the cells in our . Everything and everyone is made of molecules. The scientists developed a called cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM). This lets scientists zoom in to new levels. Scientists can now see in our bodies never seen before. They can see how the building of life move.

The Nobel Prize said the new technique will change science . The technique has "moved biochemistry into a new ". It added: "Soon, there will be no more . Now we can see the… of [molecules] in every corner of our cells and every of our body fluids. We can understand how they are built and how they act and how they work ….We are facing a revolution in biochemistry." A professor said there were many uses for the technique. Scientists can look at the building blocks of viruses and find for many diseases.
