Oct 21, 2010: It's a Small World

Nikon runs a yearly photo contest in microscopy.

Celebrating 36 years of excellence in photography through the microscope, The Nikon International
Small World Competition is dedicated to furthering creativity and excellence in photomicrography
This is the 2010 winner by Jonas King, Vanderbilt University.
Can you guess what it is?

This was one that caught my eye, #10 by Yanping Wang, Beijing Planetarium.
What do you think this is?

Highlight below for the answers...
#1, Anopheles gambiae (mosquito) heart (100X), #10, Crystallized soy sauce (16X)



Cloud  Thursday Oct 21 12:22 AM

my guess without looking: top --looks like a textile or fiber; bottom--salt

eta: lol! way off on first one; off on second one, but not too far off!

SPUCK  Thursday Oct 21 05:01 AM

Cloud; I guessed wool... Way off too.

Trilby  Thursday Oct 21 06:43 AM

I was way off on both - very interesting.

Actually, you were probably right. It might have been that in it.

Ummmm, soy sauce soft like pillow.

I thought they were both props from the new Tron movie. Wrong and wrong.

Spend some time clicking through the other entries to the contest. They're impressive.

This is the new haiku!

The first one looks like Edvard Munch painted a bridge at night.

The second made me think of a table cloth. What?

Gravdigr  Sunday Oct 24 06:36 AM

These. Two. Things. Are. Not. Of. This. Earth. (The first one just plain scares me.)

I think my Sea Monkeys were all inbred and stupid. I never once saw them turn on the television or pick up the mail. I had, like, the carnival freaks of the Sea Monkey continuum.

I never realized it before but those sea monkeys are... nekkid!!!
