RC7: D2O Only Setup and Day 0 pics

  • Anthony Salvagno

The setup for this experiment was rather simple:

  • Opened 6 analyslides (see Experiments Products page above)
  • poured at least 30 seeds into each analyslide
  • added 6mL of D2O
  • closed chambers and sealed with corning vacuum grease

I’m going to refer to this experiment as RCD from now on both in titles and in the categories on the side. This will be the second to last Repeating Crumley Experiment I do, for thoroughness sake. The final experiment will be my attempt to do a few samples on moist pads to show that the seeds grew because of phenomenon other than D2O. How I plan to achieve this is another story. Preplan? Preplan…

Now on to the pics:

Since the camera setup for the analyslides will be used for a different experiment (coming soon) I’ll just be taking pictures of the seeds as a lump group (but I’ll have to take better ones than this batch). I’ll also do this every 7 days, but I’ll check more frequently than that in case there is some random sprouting.

Also it is worth noting that one of the samples is actually a sample from the last DDW experiment. It was not recorded for data because D2O had nothing to do with purified regular water, but I used it as a control. That was over a month ago and there are still no sprouts.
