In some cases we have more realistic views not because of sophisticated imaging technology but because of software that interprets data and produces an image indirectly.

In either case, consider how the use of imaging software or technology is linked to reliability and certainty.

An RLE like the tardigrade image / research could paired with an older RLE where a scientist, for example, created sketches of what he / she observed. Hand-drawn sketches have their own unique connection to the “reliable knowledge” and “certainty” terms in November Prescribed Title #6.
