Solution

Yes, it is possible to see atoms these days, with the help of advanced technology. Electronic microscopes are extremely powerful and can magnify even the smallest particle. A Scanning Tunnelling Microscope (STM) can be used to produce highly magnified images of the surface of elements on a computer screen. Therefore, a highly sophisticated STM can be used to view atoms indirectly.
