Ask me anything   Submit   “The theory of quantum electrodynamics describes Nature as absurd from the point of view of common sense. And it agrees fully with experiment. So I hope you can accept Nature as She is--Absurd.”
--Richard Feynman
A multiple (5) exposure photomicrograph of melt-recrystallized ascorbic acid (the wheat field), xanthan gum base (the mountains), the microscope field diaphragm defocused with a yellow filter (the moon), and liquid crystalline polybenzyl-L-glutamate spherulites (the stars) with a blue filter to simulate the sky. This photomicrograph utilizes both brightfield and polarized light photomicrography.
