Snow in the middle of August? Nah, just some good ol’ liquid nitrogen in the lab. Dima’s comment about macro made me want to get a macro lens even more now…ahh the temptation!
It started when Alla tried to freeze a bubble (that came out of the bubble wand) in liquid nitrogen. Pro magician Dima came to demonstrate how it’s done and it became a bubble party when Rajat, Guillaume, and I joined in the fun. Yes, you may not know this, but scientists can be fun too!
Handling liquid nitrogen has become an almost daily part of my work as I need to use it frequently for materials preparation. I have yet to freeze the whole lab, sorry to disappoint those who have requested (Sharon/PoA/captain/etc.)
