This Nano Gigapan has two matches side by side illustrating the difference (as seen under a scanning electron microscope) between a unlit strike anywhere match and one that has been burned. This image is composed of 140 pictures of matches magnified 150x. Can you tell which has been burned?

    My bet is that the one on the right is burned and the one on the left is unburned.
