Fascinating dust

(1/2) > >>

IainB:
In ScienceBits there's a an interesting description of what appeared to be ferrous and cement dust dendrites from kitchen renovation work depositing and forming into patterns on magnetic objects and on nylon fabric on the walls: Dust Dendrites

I wondered whether the patterns that formed on the nylon might have been due to static electrical charge. I recall that they use/used static charged objects to collect dust to help maintain "dust-free" environments in aircraft component manufacturing.

TIL: Our definitions of "Fascinating" differ vastly.  ;D

Rather random, but after typing my comment here, I hit next on Imgur, and found this: http://imgur.com/gallery/1a3H2

@Stephen66515: What a superb picture. From an electron microscope, presumably.(?)
