Fun! Will you repost every day or should I check the site?
I’ll be happy to post every day. For the record (your guess is as good as mine), I picked Cell for the Left and Celestial for the one on the right 🙂
Rajini Rao I quite like some of this interesting info & content that you have been posting!
ANSWER : Image on left is Cellular: mouse egg cell, stained for tubulin (protein of the skeletal network or microtubules). For the full image see: http://www.cellimagelibrary.org/images/12628
Image on right is Celestial: Our friendly neighborhood star! See the full image of the sun taken from here: http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/stereo/news/stereo3D_press.html
58% of voters got the answer right. Look for Tuesday’s quiz coming up.
First thought: Green Lantern’s light!
The pic on the right is the sun of course!
