January 2012 - Happy Chinese New Year
Micro-CT Scan of a Fortune Cookie for the Year of the Dragon!
For the Chinese New Year, Micro Photonics has scanned a fortune cookie in their Skyscan 1173 micro-CT computed tomography system. The New Year started January 23rd and this year is the Year of the Dragon. There are some interesting facts presented by both infoplease and wiki about the tradition and activities associated with the holiday, including why the years are named after animals and in which animal year you were born.
