Day 1: The Journey Begins

A Microscope's View

----------------------------------------------- Stained Embryo

The image to the right is of a 24 hour old chick embryo seen under a light microscope. This is a top view of the embryo. This is how it would appear if you were looking down on it laying on top of its yolk. At this age the embryo is about 30mm long from the tip of its head to its tail. The embryo has been stained to make it easier to see under the microscope.

The image below is the same embryo, enlarged, turned black and white, and labeled.
