jamais plus je ne regarderai ces choses la de la meme manière. Merci la science!

Ces choses semblent toutes droit sorties d'un cauchemar. Et le pire, c'est que la plupart d'entre elles sont sur vous, là, maintenant.

I love how you can see the cells embedded in/passing through the vein wall. Ruptured venule under scanning electron microscope.

Red blood cells exposed inside a torn venule. A venule is a very small blood vessel in the microcirculation that allows deoxygenated blood to return from the capillary beds to veins.

Pollen from a forget-me-not. This flower has one of the smallest known grains of pollen; just five one-thousandths of a millimetre in diameter. A Swiss scientists named Martin Oeggerli, who uses the name Micronaut for his art, has captured these Scanning Electron Microscope images of pollen grains.

Author Renee Silvana: T is for Tardigrade

The Tardigrade aka Water Bear. Able to survive the vacuum of space, radiation, intense pressures and years of being dried out and 'dead.

Rare Adonis blue butterfly egg is laid only on the horseshoe vetch, a type of European perennial. (National Geographic)

Under the Microscope: "The Adonis blue butterfly is rare because it's choosy. It lays its eggs (like the one above) only on horseshoe vetch, a European perennial. What's more, it looks for patches cropped by rabbits that allow easy landing.

MICROSCOPIC HAIRS IN INNER EAR:  Inner ear help divers (like the one in today's pic) know their up down orientation in water.  Sounds under water are magnified. When we hear sounds (whether under water or above) microscopic hairs in our inner ears vibrate.

Human tongue surface, coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM). Covering the tongue's surface are scale-like projections called filiform papillae, which sense pressure. The round areas (purple) are fungiform papillae which contain the taste buds.
