Beauty of Science: A Gallery

This psychedelically-hued microscopic image shows chemical reactions resulting from the heating of zinc metal vapor, which has caused changes on the surface of zinc oxide crystals. Zinc oxide is an inorganic compound material that is used in a wide range of areas, including optics, electronics, nuclear science and medicine.

1. It's a beauty!

I am on slow connection, so I can't click through.

Looks like some of the Hubble Space Telescope pics or like a Mandelbrot set pic.

Nature is pretty cool shit, eh?

3. Well, littlemissmartypants...you think you're so clever but I have you figured out.

That may be zinc metal vapor to you but to the intelligent people, it's (obviously) a photo of a silver-blue dog.

Nice try...

Sorry about the confusion....
