The incredible, edible egg.
This has got to be one of the strangest things I have ever seen. In this photo, my son is holding a raw chicken egg that is perfectly intact, despite it’s shell being gone. In this semi-transparent state, we can get a glimpse into this little wonder of the biological world. Look at how beautiful it is! What a masterful work of art by Mother Nature.
The incredible phenomenon of a shell-less egg is made possible by a simple science experiment that demonstrates how cell membranes work (cool fact: eggs are the largest single cell on earth – who knew?!) Anyone can do this experiment at home using only an egg, vinegar and corn syrup. If you are interested in trying this yourself, here’s a YouTube video on how it’s done: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nBrziJ21By0
