That beautiful thing that you see up there is a picture (SEM) of a Kidney Stone provided by Kevin Mackenzie from the University of Aberdeen. 

We all heard about the pains that kidney stones can cause. The build up of salts and minerals can mean hours or days of pushing these suckers out. The pains that are associated with it for men are often compared to women giving birth, and there have been pretty standard methods of treatment. 

1. Breaking them down through shock wave lithotripsy, a noninvasive technique in which high-frequency shock waves break the stones into smaller residues 

2. If that doesn’t work, using surgical methods to remove it physically.

Researchers at Duke found a way to minimize damage and increase the waves’ accuracy and efficiency by changing the shape of the lens that focuses the shockwaves. Who said Physics wasn’t useful?!?

The sources include their recent publication. And the photo above depicts a 2mm stone, and is indeed false-colored just in case anyone was interested.

Casting rumors are buzzing that Kevin Ryan (of BBC America’s Copper) has been cast as our dear Roger Mac. He recently posted on twitter of an announcement that he’d soon be making and Outlander is following him there. Having watched him in Copper, the man can sing and has a great range of emotion in his acting. Fingers crossed this is our Roger!
