On the occasion of Fat Thursday, students and employees of the AGH University of Science and Technology in Krakow chose a donut with jam as the object of their research. They shared photos that at first glance do not resemble a good yeast product on the Internet.

Microscopes, tomographs, shredders and laser scanning were used to study the donut. “A total of over 800 laboratories operate at AGH UST. At 16 faculties and in non-faculty units, scientists work on a daily basis with equipment that is unique, often on a national or European scale” – emphasize representatives of the university.

Commenters in social media, however, drew attention to the practical aspect of examining the donut with a tomograph, i.e. tracking the page with the highest content of jam. “Yes, so as not to feel disappointed for the first few bites” – they specify.
