Answer to the Friday Whatsit for June 23, 2010
No guesses this week, although Jenn did say the image looked awfully familiar. . . Probably because this is really a bit of a movie we made with her cells and my microscope. These structures are the chained together version of organelles called mitochondria. Most of the time they are just short little rods, but this was a particularly pretty reticular pattern. Before we melted the mitochondria (and nearly the cells) into little balls with some chemicals. But all in the name of science!
Next week. . . something from the garden???
