XRAY CAT Scanning on a micorscopic scale

XRAY Cat Scan

XRAY Cat Scan of Spider with Mite enacased in Amber

“CT allowed us to digitally dissect the mite off the spider in order to reveal the important features on the underside of the mite required for identification,” – that’s XRAY CAT Scanning he’s talking about and the mite (and spider) are encased in amber. Look at the picture. He’s talking about looking at the underside of the mite which we cannot see without removing it from the amber. Cool!!


About xamble

Most things I do involve computers. Nowadays that sounds stupid to hear because everyone uses computers. Except I was saying that before the IBM PC came on the scene. (hint: my first programs were entered on punch cards in an IBM-29) Now I mostly use them. Mostly to provide a community service in my small town. Because I could when it was asked and still can. And I'm a wannabe writer. Various books in various states of incompleteness. A few short stories. Might do more of that.
