Crystallizing Vitamin C

It's so cool when people who have access to hi-tech equipment share the stuff they see with the rest of us. Photographer Jens Braun dissolved some vitamin C and then let it recrystallize under a microscope fitted with a camera, using polarized light. We get to see the action in various speeds and colors. It's the conjunction of art and science. Or you might say that the natural world is a work of art, but we aren't able to see all of it without the help of an artist. (via Digg)

So when you drink a Screwdriver those mini-razor blade form in your body, so drink whiskey unless you're underage then stick to beer.
