I never pay much attention to the cucumber or the garlic that I chop up to make dinner (I DID pay attention to make sure I don't accidentally chop up my fingers - that's important). However, images from Andy Ellison, an MRI technologist at Boston University Medical School, make me wonder why I haven't done so. Andy took amazing MRI images of daily fruits, vegetables, and plants (the latest posts are done with cactus and lilies) and posted them on his blog. Moreover, his friends used his images and put together 3D interactive versions. His blog was even featured in the Science Magazine (see write'rs post http://jennywp.jennycarpenter.com/?p=679).
By the way, my favourite is the star fruit!
