It’s time to get ready for the next semester! My teaching load will be high this spring. I’m team teaching a Nanoimaging course, teaching Materials Characterization, and teaching a freshman seminar titled Nano: Small Science Big Deal. It’ll be a fun but busy semester!
Today, I started thinking about my Materials Characterization course, and I came across some really cool MRI images of the insides of fruits and vegetables. The images of whole fruits are particularly amazing to me. My personal favorite is the persimmon – not only is the image beautiful, but also my grandfather loved persimmons and introduced them to me. Anyway, these are seriously complicated materials, and seeing how the whole fruit looks – from the outside in – is fascinating. Check them out!
