This colorful electron micrograph is of staphylococcus aureus, often the culprit behind skin and respiratory infections as well as food poisoning. These guys aren't really purple. Color has been added to make the picture easier to see, since at 20,000x magnification, most everything is nearly transparent. This is a picture puzzle. You can click the image to start, and then reassemble the puzzle against a timer. If you are very fast, you may be able to enter the hall of fame. But you can enjoy the puzzle slowly also. The timer doesn't expire until an hour has passed. It is easy to embed this puzzle in your own blog or web pages. Here's How.
