The Haunting Beauty At The Heart Of A Cell's Wounded Monolayer

Here's a microscopy image of a fibroblast, stained with a few different antibodies. The green is microtubuli, the red is cell-contacts and the blue is DNA. It's just one of Jan Schmoranzer's amazing nano-art images. » 3/05/09 7:30am 3/05/09 7:30am

When Nano-Wires Explode

This image of "Nano-Explosions" won first prize in this year's "Science As Art" competition. Fanny Beron from the École Polytechnique de Montréal used an electron scanning micrograph to record the explosion that happened when a CoFeB magnetic array was overloaded. The chaotic blasts are a "reminder that nanoscale‚Ķ » 1/02/08 4:00pm 1/02/08 4:00pm
