Happy Fat Tuesday!

Happy Fat Tuesday! Here is a festive little Mardi Gras bead animation piece we put together to brighten up your week! See if you can spot the science elements peppered throughout…

“Extremely Fun Mardi Gras Bead Animation.”

And while we’re at it, what would Fat Tuesday be without the FAT? Speaking of which, here are a clump of fat cells (also known as lipocytes or adipocytes) from a recent project MadMicrobe has completed. Adipocytes, the type of cells that primarily compose adipose tissue, store energy in the form of fat within large globules in their cytoplasm. Enjoy your Fat Tuesday festivities today, and remember these little guys are lurking within, ready to help you store whatever extra “energy” you throw at them! 🙂
