Happy Thanksgiving from Microtrace!
What in the world?
This Thanksgiving, we, here at Microtrace, offer a little puzzle for your enjoyment. So gather the family around the table and take a stab at our mini-mystery.
Above are two images, both mashed together,
The substances magnified- boiled down to their essence.
Can you carve up a solution to this curious puzzle?
To answer: the first of course is a feather,
The second shows starch of a magnified tater,
Since potatoes and turkey make Thanksgiving better.
The image on the left is a turkey feather magnified 400x by polarized light microscopy (PLM). The image on the right shows the starch grains of a potato by PLM.
Because, any way you slice it, turkey and potatoes are foundational elements of a Thanksgiving meal.
