Motivational Megafauna, they’re extinct but they are proud of you.

I’ve always wanted a mastodon hug.

Cells cultured along origami seams, prodded to self assemble into 3D shapes. Future applications include organ growth and drug delivery.

Awesome! If you missed this cellular origami technique a couple weeks ago, you can read about it in this post of mine from a couple weeks ago. On a side note, I’m always happy when people turn science into GIFs.

Kiss of the Cretaceous Spider
Wow. Talk about unlucky. A hundred million years ago, this prehistoric spider had just grabbed lunch, literally. A wasp had been captured and was about to become spider chow. Just then, they were both engulfed in a drop of tree resin, and preserved in amber.
Although the Jurassic Park-style DNA-from-amber tricks aren’t actually realistic (sadly), it doesn’t diminish the coolness of capturing a prehistoric moment in a fossil freeze-frame.

What goes into the ocean, goes into you, as this ad by Portland agency Pollinate brilliantly illustrates.
Easily mistaken for food, marine plastic – which comes primarily from land-based sources – is ingested by fish and ocean mammals.

Astronomy by Taylor Allen is an “ongoing personal project exploring the human form and the organic nature of deep space formations”. 

Stunning work. Which do you think is more exquisitely built? The cosmos or the human form? 

One is a seemingly infinite collection of various condensations of matter, all expanding outward from the same genesis, existing independently across immense distances that turn even the simplest observations into time travel.

The other is a localized collection of biological units, each dependent on the summed contributions of the whole, and even on the contributions of life beyond itself, in order to exist at all. As the cosmos does, it arises from a single genesis, but its growth and organization rely on an intensely intricate choreography of signals, relationships and cooperation across distances small enough that we don’t distinguish them from the body as a whole.

One is built out small bits of the other, but the larger, in a way, does not exist except that it has been named by the smaller.

I am psyched on these illustrations by Nicholas Beales! Coming from a microbiology and immunology background, I absolutely approved!

Project Blood 48:14 by Nicholas Beales on Behance

These are awesome! I’d love these as posters, they look like strange little warriors each pertaining to their own clan.

“Aye there, what clan be ye? Clan MacRophage? Or are ye of the Highland T-cells?”
