Broken egg shell edge, SEM Featured 12 Mar 2003 Print

Broken egg shell edge, SEM

Broken egg shell edge. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the edge of a fragment of an egg shell. Hard-shelled eggs are produced by birds and some reptiles. The shell protects the embryo that develops inside, performing vital functions such as controlling the passage of air in and out of the egg through tiny pores. Thousands of these pores cover the egg shell surface. The thickness of the shell varies with its size, as normally a larger egg stretches the same amount of shell over a larger area, producing a thinner shell. Most of the egg shell material is calcium carbonate, and accounts for about a tenth of the egg's weight. Magnification unknown

Model of a Cro-Magnon man doing a cave painting

Cave painting. Model of a Cro-Magnon man, a type of early modern human (Homo sapiens sapiens), doing a cave painting. It is thought that animals were painted onto the walls of the caves in which Cro-Magnons lived to give their hunters power over animals, ensuring a successful hunt. Cave paintings first appeared in Europe around 35, 000 years ago. Cro-Magnons lived in Europe, northern Africa and southern Asia from 50, 000 years ago. Cro-Magnons are so-called due to discoveries made in a rock shelter of that name in France. This model, from a Nordstar exhibition, was photograph- ed at the Naturkundemuseum in Stuttgart, Germany
