Take a moment to contemplate this photograph. What does it make you think of? For us this image resembles many different paraphernalia including: a spider’s web; various close-ups of molecules and the inside of a beehive i.e. honeycomb.
This is actually a microscopic photograph analysing a sponge. Synthetic sponges are usually made up of wood pulp, sodium sulphate and hemp fiber which is what you can see here. We asked you to guess what this image was so that the scientific nature of the process was revealed to later conclude your own observation of this image.
