CHALLENGE: Case of the missing crystal eggs
The scientists noticed a set of crystal eggs had been stolen when they reported to work early Tuesday morning. Reliable witnesses say the eggs were definitely there on Monday morning. The thieves must have come in sometime between Monday morning and Tuesday morning.
The camera system had been disconnected, but the laboratory had a backup system: a webcam took a picture of the crystals every 5 minutes and stored it securely. Every hour 12 pictures were taken, so in the 24-hour period, 12 * 24 = 288 pictures were taken.
