Diatoms under scanning electron microscope.  They produce up to 40% of the world’s breathable oxygen!

Back to science..

"We’ve arranged a society based on science and technology in which nobody understands anything about science and technology, and this combustible mixture of ignorance and power, sooner or later, is going to blow up in our faces."

Carl Sagan 

Mint chocolate chip brownies

10 ounces bittersweet chocolate chips (reserve remaining chips from bag to stir into batter)
1/3 cup butter
1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 salt
1 cup sugar
3 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
12 ounces mint chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Melt 10 oz. chocolate and butter in a small bowl in the microwave on medium. Melt for 1 minute and stir. Repeat until melted and smooth. Set aside to cool.
In a medium bowl, combine flour, soda and salt. Stir together with a wire whisk and set aside.
In your mixer, beat sugar, eggs and vanilla.
Add chocolate mixture to sugar. Then add flour mixture. Mix until combined.
Stir in mint chips and remaining chocolate chips.
Pour into a greased and floured 8X8 inch pan and bake forever. I mean about 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out almost clean.
