Odd Shot Monday!

Happy Monday everyone,
It was a busy weekend in the garden, and my laptop is still in pieces, so I didn't get a chance to post this weekend, sorry about that.

The answer to last weeks odd shot: dried tomatoes. The closest answer was dried peppers. Great job everyone who made a guess.

This week:



This one is really tough, so I will give you a couple of hints. First, this picture was taken through a microscope. Second, I'm a planetary scientist, so think outside of our world. Third, it is part of an educational series from NASA. Good Luck

For more Odd Shots, or to add one of your own, head over to Katney.

hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!
Difficult one!

Before I read it, I knew it looked like a microscopic picture. I have no idea what it is -- was jsut thinking it would make a neat material design. . .

It reminds me of a piece of Marrimeko (sp?) fabric .. I am sure its microscopic look at a piece of the Moon rock or perhaps something from the recent Mars landing?

Humm.......pieces of the red planet?

I will not even venture a guess this time.

Let's see: Planetary scientist (think big) + microscope (think small). Hummmmmmmm? Samples of green cheese brought back from the moon perhaps?

Are you side-tracking us? If not, maybe it's Martian dust. Or maybe not!

Sharon said...

It looks like glass.....
the orange parts do anyway. Basically I have no idea, but it is a cool picture!

Texas Travelers said...

The red looks like glass spherules and the black maybe silica fragments?

Our odd fact is now showing.
Come visit,

Hmmm... something from the Shuttle, maybe. No clue. Looks pretty cool, though...

I'm was going to say "meteorite" but then you said "Nasa" so I thought "Moon Dust" but then I saw "Planetary Scientist" so I began thinking "Mars". Next I remembered that Phoenix has been able to get a dusting of soil onto its substrates so it has begun sending microscope images of dust back to Earth but it may be too early for those images to be on a NASA training film. So I'll go back to a Martian meteorite which may have been found in the Antarctic. Whew - I finally came to a conclusion - which is probably wrong :)

I have no idea ...some kind of glass but I never am good..I like the design and think it would work on fabric!!
