Van Gogh’s Skin
Mark Hutchin, University of MichiganArt Quilt by Carole Nicholas, Fiber Artists@Loose Ends
Basal skin carcinoma is the most common form of human skin cancer and can be modeled in mice because their underlying skin structure is similar to humans. Learning about how the disease forms in mice may provide clues to prevent skin cancer in humans.
Image: (Left) A cross-section of mouse skin with basal cell carcinoma is shown. The normal skin surface is stained red using Masoson trichrome stain. The blue dye marks the fibrous layer of collagen underlying the skin surface, and the basal tumor cells appear in the red at the bottom. (Right) Using Van Gogh’s “Starry Night” as inspiration, the artist renders the image with fabric and stitching to simulate the painter’s brushwork.

Nicknamed a ‘shockfossil’ this sculpture was generated by a particle accelerator, which is a device that uses electromagnetic fields to propel electrically-charged particles to extremely high speeds. It takes up to 5 million volts to accelerate a beam of electrons into acrylic, and when these temporarily trapped electrons are released, they are carefully gathered into channels that look like everything from river deltas to trees to human lungs. Read more: http://bit.ly/16NghOg

This bright clump of worms resembles the wild snakes that surrounded the head of the mythological sea monster Medusa. But unlike Medusa’s snakes, these worms became sticky and connected during an experiment designed to understand how molecules determine cell and organism size. C. elegans worms have a transparent nature that makes them ideal for fluorescence microscopy. This single image captures all levels of the central dogma of biology: DNA (stained in blue) and pre-processed ribosomal RNA (stained in red), while the worms are a transgenic line with fib1::gfp protein (in green).

Stirring FacesThese dramatic curlicues were generated by a computer simulation of the motion of a small body — in this case a flat, rigid plate — through an incompressible fluid, such as water or, in some conditions, air. Each of the four images depicts the same phenomenon, but at a different point in time. The “eyes” of the facelike pictures correspond to vortices of turbulence caused by the motion of the plate through the fluid. “Two direct goals of the research are to better understand how birds and insects fly, and to develop unsteady aerodynamic models for advanced micro-aerial vehicles,” says Steve Brunton, a graduate student in Princeton’s department of mechanical and aerospace engineering.Read more: http://www.time.com/time/photogallery/0,29307,1995575,00.html#ixzz2ZD8ou33V
