A new baby arrives in the Thornett household

There is excitement in our household – a new baby, a bit overweight at birth at 20kg. He is a Zeiss IM phase contrast microscope – quite a baby! This will allow us to see live cells without staining……I am thinking of pond water from the forestry centre here! If you have never seen phase contrast microscopy then go to Youtube and search for “Phase contrast microscopy pond water” and you will see what I mean – as close to seeing ET as you can get on Earth!
