Taste bud on tongue surface Featured 18 Mar 2004 Print

Taste bud on tongue surface

Taste bud on tongue surface. Coloured Scanning Electron Micrograph (SEM) of the human tongue revealing the pore of a taste bud. The taste pore (blue, at centre) is an opening in the surface epithelium of the tongue which leads to a barrel- shaped taste bud that lies immediately underneath. The orange tipped projections all around the taste pore are known as papilla lingual. There are many types of these protuberances that cover the anterior two thirds of the tongue. These papilla have sensory and mechanical functions. Beneath this layer the tongue is composed of muscle fibres which help it to move. Magnification: x120 at 5x7cm size

Smoke from a fire driving a turbine in a chimney Featured 18 Mar 2004 Print

Smoke from a fire driving a turbine in a chimney

Smoke-powered turbine. Engraving of smoke from a fire rising up and powering a turbine in a chimney. The thermal energy of the smoke is being converted into the rotational mechanical energy of the spinning turbine. The turbine is connected, through a series of cogs, to a spit which is turning a bird that is cooking beside the fire. The bird is being cooked beside the fire rather than over it so that any fat dripping off it can be collected and used to make candles. Image taken from a 1662 book
