I wanted to use synchrotron-based X-ray tomography on our neutrino goo, but nobody would pay for it

/maybe not the tomography part, but definitely the synchroton-based X-rays

Sounds like you're recovering from a stroke.

Synchrotron - the source of the x-rays being used, essentially causing electrons to emit radiation by accelerating them in a controlled manner.

X-Rays - a specific wavelength of electromagnetic radiation, used in medicine and biology because it selectively interacts with biological tissues based on a number of useful factors, most notably material density, making it useful for things like taking a picture of an arm and seeing the bone inside instead of the skin outside.

Tomography - creating a three-dimensional image of something by taking pictures in "slices" and then stacking the slices.  Common in medicine to do things like approximate the current shape and condition of an organ at higher resolution.

Microscopy - taking images with a resolution of a micron or smaller, something that humans can't really do reliably with the naked eye.  Usually the intent is to magnify the image of something tiny, in this case plant cells.

There.  Now you know.  Specifically, now you know that none of those words describe anything you didn't probably already know about, and that the technique is fairly intuitive if you even have the science knowledge of "having watched a CSI-type show once".

Tomography: reconstructing a 3d volume from 2 projections. It's harder than just stacking slices.

Meh, it's just not the same without Bevets.

Thanks.  I did guess that someone knew what they were talking about, but it didn't stop from giving me a laugh.

Perhaps a better criticism of the article was the use of a very specific term in the caption and then never revisiting the term in the article, just assuming that either people knew what the Synchrotron-based-X-ray-tomographic microscope was, or that people would just nod their heads and move on.  I would expect the use of such a specific term would merit some mention in the main article, but no, it's just in the caption and then we move on.

U R GETTING ALL FANCY MR.  I bet you have one of those cameras.
