**...

A student on a streetcar notices a tiny man, catches him in a matchbox, and takes him home.

The micro-man is in telepathic contact with people from his electron and gives a running report on what he sees.

It's kind of hard to guess the size of the explorer, if he's really from an electron. The story has a few too many implausibilities to completely suspend disbelief. Ackerman wanted to tell his story, so he took the direct route of telling it despite reality. Perhaps it's a satire, like Gulliver's Travels.
