Caffeine Up Close and More than Personal

coffeecaffeineupclose.jpg

Though it might look like splinters of multi-colored wood it's not. This is a false-colored scanning electron micrograph showing caffeine crystals in close-up detail. Photographed by Annie Cavangh and David McCarthy, the image was one of the winners of this year's Wellcome Image Awards. This crystal group, formed on the end of a larger crystal, measured around 40 microns in length.

We're all about science and caffeine, and the Welcome Image Awards are trying to excite everyone about how cool and amazing science can be, and we think rainbow colored crystal caffeine images get us excited.
