The original audio is missing, but you can listen to a 2008 re-creation here (from Radio Visions).

The electron microscope allows us to see things unimaginably tiny. What if we could take the microscopic and make it macroscopic? Imagine the potential for medical research, for battleships with the armor of beetles, for innovations of all kinds.

Imagine the dangers. Imagine a microbe the size of a pet. Unpredictable, not killable by any normal means. Feeding. Reproducing.
