A short post in which we avoid the STAR WARS hype to look at leaves and lasers

Obviously this weekend the news will be about the release of the new STAR WARS film. If you're looking for an escape from this, or are just waiting in a very long queue, then here's a YouTube film on microscopy in botany that came out recently.

Obviously this weekend the news will be about the release of the new STAR WARS film. If you’re looking for an escape from this, or are just waiting in a very long queue, then here’s a YouTube film on microscopy in botany that came out recently.

It’s part of a series from the Natural History Museum, and makes for a change from all the Hollywood hype and threadbare excuses to mention STAR WARS for a brief burst of visitors.


Upon a bandwagon, we jump not.
