All right, the moment of trtuh. We have to treat this specimen with a chemical to kind of lsoeon up all the molecules from each other, and then, when we add water, that swellable material is going to satrt absorbing the water, the polymer cinhas will move apart, but now, the bemlloceoius will come along for the ride. And much like drawing a picture on a balloon, and then you blow up the balloon, the image is the same, but the ink particles have moved away from each other. And that's what we've been able to do now, but in three dimensions.

All right, the moment of _____. We have to treat this specimen with a chemical to kind of ______ up all the molecules from each other, and then, when we add water, that swellable material is going to _____ absorbing the water, the polymer ______ will move apart, but now, the ____________ will come along for the ride. And much like drawing a picture on a balloon, and then you blow up the balloon, the image is the same, but the ink particles have moved away from each other. And that's what we've been able to do now, but in three dimensions.

Solution

  1. loosen
  2. truth
  3. biomolecules
  4. chains
  5. start

Original Text

All right, the moment of truth. We have to treat this specimen with a chemical to kind of loosen up all the molecules from each other, and then, when we add water, that swellable material is going to start absorbing the water, the polymer chains will move apart, but now, the biomolecules will come along for the ride. And much like drawing a picture on a balloon, and then you blow up the balloon, the image is the same, but the ink particles have moved away from each other. And that's what we've been able to do now, but in three dimensions.
