Frostbite Theater

March Microscope Madness! (Week 2 - 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 seen that yet, you might want to go back and watch that now!

Steve: If you're ready...

Image one.

This might have been a little unfair because you may not have seen one of these before, but this is the cross section of a nickel-iron meteorite.

Joanna: Image two might also be a little tricky because you probably haven't seen this, either, but it's a vinyl record.

Steve: And, image three, which you probably have seen before, just not this closely. This is dandelion fluff.

Joanna: All right!

So, if you're ready for your next three images, here they are!

Image one, taken at a magnification of 100.

Steve: Image two, also taken at a magnification of 100.

Joanna: Image three, taken at a magnification of 35.

All right!

Don't forget to leave us your guesses in the comments and join us again next week for the answers and your next three images!

Thanks for watching!


Steve: Bye!
