Recent scientific imaging goodness
- Small worlds:
- You won’t soon un-see this chicken embryo, among other neat micro bits. (Don’t worry, it’s not gory, just odd.)
- Researchers have created "‘digital embryos,’ 3D visualizations of early embryonic development down to the position of individual cells and the division of those cells."
- BibliOdyssey features beautiful drawings of micro-crustraceans from 1896.
- Olympus has posted a gallery showing the winners of its BioScapes Digital Imaging Competition. [Via]
- Cold worlds:
- Big worlds:
- Miloslav Druckmuller combined 55 shots to create this striking eclipse image. Reader Vojtech Tryhuk passed along the links and says, “[He] is using a set of software specially developed for processing of Sun eclipse photographs, all written by himself and his colleagues.”
- The Big Picture is running a Hubble Advent calendar, adding an eye-popping new image from the space telescope each day.
- The International Space Station is turning 10 this month, and TBP rounds up a great sampling of images. If you’re low on time, just see this shot.
