March Microscope Madness! (Week 4 - 2016)

Announcer: Frostbite Theater presents... Cold Cuts! No baloney!

Joanna and Steve: Just science!

Joanna: Hi! I'm Joanna!

Steve: And I'm Steve!

Joanna: Welcome back to March Microscope Madness!

We're about to reveal the answers from last week's video, so if you haven't watched it, you might want to go back and watch that now!

Steve: Otherwise...

Image one.

This is the head of a match.

Joanna: Image two.

This is the striker on the side of a matchox.

Steve: And, image three, is the head of a match ter it's used the striker on the matchbox.

Joanna: All right!

If you're ready for your last three images, here they are!

Image one, taken at a magnification of 35.

Steve: Image two, also taken at a magnification of 35.

Joanna: And, image three, once again, taken at a magnification of 35.

All right! I hope you've enjoyed March Microscope Madness! Stick around after the fog to get the answers for this week's images.


Steve: Bye!

Welcome back! Before we reveil this week's images, we want to thank the College of William and Mary's Characterization Lab for the use of their microscopes. Without their help and assistance, this series would not have happened.

And, keep in mind, next week is April Fools'. Come back next week. We'll have a video. We'll teach you how do do a trick on your friends. Or your enemies. It all depends on your mood.

Joanna: So, without further ado, the first image is, even though it looks really gross, a delicious piece of bacon.

Steve: Image two, is a slightly cracked egg.

Joanna: And, your last image, is a piece of toast!

Thanks for watching! And, join us again next week for April Fools'!


Steve: Bye!

We should not shoot on an empty stomach.

Joanna: No...

Steve: Because I want some delicious bacon.

Joanna: I know...
