That is so cool. I mean, of course the colours have been added and all but it still looks cool as hell.

Micro Empire

...moving on from Macro Kingdom, we pass through the portal of a microscope to venture into the Micro Empire ... surrounding us … inhabiting us …

Stranger than fiction… molecular conflict and mitochondrial warfare … a heartstopping, subcellular epic … a truly microcinematic experience …
HOLY SHIT

photo from my current research project--glial cells in a mouse brain during a induced epileptic seizure
this is an insanely awesome technique used to visualize different resident cells of the CNS

I guess my excitement about this shows just how nerdy I am haha

Awesome! How I would love to work in a neuro lab. I recently aquired a star telecope. Might have to try and get some shots out of it..but days and nights are bright nowadays sadly.

Do you live in a city? I'm lucky that I live close enough to a city to enjoy the culture and atmosphere but I'm still just a few minutes (maybe 20 minutes) from areas secluded enough for perfect views of the night's sky!

I live way north above the artic circle in a small town, the problem in the months ahead is pure daylight 8-)

WOW! that's so cool! I've always wanted to travel into the arctic! From videos and photos it houses some of the most uniquely gorgeous sights I've ever seen (however, I think this about a lot of places >_> basically I just want to travel and explore--its the nature of my innate curiosity haha)
