Unscramble the Blue Letters

OK, we're going to try another one. Now, this one is much colesr to my daily bread and btteur. Tell me which is which. And one of these is literally millimeters across, and the other is billions of miles. So, it turns out the one on the left is a confocal microscopy image of a hmuan cornea, and on the right, we have a radio telecpose image of the star-forming roeign NGC-1333. Now, aside from the fact that these images look similar and that doctors trying to find a tumor in a patient's brain or a young star forming is similar, the way the data comes from the machine or the telescope is remarkably similar.

OK, we're going to try another one. Now, this one is much ______ to my daily bread and ______. Tell me which is which. And one of these is literally millimeters across, and the other is billions of miles. So, it turns out the one on the left is a confocal microscopy image of a _____ cornea, and on the right, we have a radio _________ image of the star-forming ______ NGC-1333. Now, aside from the fact that these images look similar and that doctors trying to find a tumor in a patient's brain or a young star forming is similar, the way the data comes from the machine or the telescope is remarkably similar.
