Sometimes Life Gives You Things

Not too uppity, just enough spice.

Various alcohols under an electron microscope. This has certainly reinforced my love of beer.

"What you can see in the magnified pictures are the crystalised carbohydrates that have become sugars and glucose. Each image was created by using a pipette of each particular drink and squeezing a drop onto a slide. Then the droplets are allowed to dry out and the slide is placed under the microscope and a picture taken.” -Lester Hutt, founder of Bevshots, who created these beauties.

For those who may not know (thanks, Wikipedia!): “An electron microscope uses a beam of electrons to illuminate a specimen and produce a magnified image… The electron microscope uses electrostatic and electromagnetic ”lenses” to control the electron beam and focus it to form an image. These lenses are analogous to but different from the glass lenses of an optical microscope that form a magnified image by focusing light on or through the specimen. Electron microscopes are used to observe a wide range of biological and inorganic specimens includingmicroorganismscells, large moleculesbiopsy samples, metals, and crystals.”
