BWOO-OOF! Looks like our bouncy hero forgot to watch his backside. The evil (yet devilishly handsome) VonZapper claims it was easier than hitting the broadside of a barn but I think he just got in a lucky shot.
Take a fantastic journey through the human body, thanks to the magic of technology and the most spectacular microscopic images ever created. These pictures, as beautiful as any art, provide a window into the wonder of our brains, the work of a white blood cell, the power of hormones, the tiny hairs on our arms, the movement of human cancer cells, the jagged edges of caffeine crystals, and more. Enjoy the collection purely as a visual voyage or as a means of understanding the science behind the images—which all include the scale of the photography as well as the scientific details in layman’s terms.
Scientists have unveiled the most comprehensive
analysis ever undertaken of the world’s ocean plankton, the tiny
organisms that serve as food for marine creatures such as the blue
whale, but also provide half the oxygen we breathe.
The international team of researchers spent three and a half years
aboard the schooner Tara, taking 35,000 samples of plankton from 210
sites globally, determining the distribution of the organisms, tracking
how they interact with one another and carrying out genetic analyses.
Plankton include microscopic plants and animals, fish larvae,
bacteria, viruses and other microorganisms that drift in the oceans.
Along the Old Lane by CentipedeCarpet Via Flickr: Down in Misaki Harbor (三崎港), in the Miura Peninsula south of Tokyo, you can see tons of old buildings dating to the 1930s or 40s, and some from much earlier that are still standing. It’s an amazing place, and only a few hours south of Tokyo by train and bus.
