The Bewildering, Astonishing and Iconic things thread.

I stood looking for an age at the cut open sphere in the Science Museum some forty years ago. It was a tad less complex than this. I wonder how many of those components are required.

"Fearfully and wonderfully made" Psalms 139:14!

ďThis isnít a painting. It is the most detailed image of a human cell to date, obtained by radiography, nuclear magnetic resonance and cryoelectron microscopy."

Looks like an aerial view of the Night Gardens in Singapore.

Just brilliant picture.

I so wouldn't want to be in that boat. The very instant it hit.

Blast it. I'm going to be spending days now just trying to find out what all those bits are.

Looks like a coronavirus hiding in the middle, next to the Buckyball, the corncob, and the bowl of easter eggs.

Those parts running from three o clock and up to the top left apart from appearing to be delaminating also appear to have a wacking great heatsink in them.

The broken pinballs at the bottom appears to be stuck between the flippers.

I like the design of what looks to me like a fastener of the two cells on the top right. It looks like it can easily accomodate being stretched and squished, in fact I see a triple mechanism in that fastener, or maybe my imagination has run wild.

That looks like a tight junction

A little light reading:

I copied 'This isn't a painting' but of course even colour enhanced tomography needs a bit of help. My professor son had already seen it and the site, or a site, in which nests of Easter eggs are interpreted differently.

"Created for Cell Signaling Technology, Inc., and inspired by the stunning art of David Goodsell, this 3D rendering of a eukaryotic cell is modeled using X-ray, nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), and cryo-electron microscopy datasets for all of its molecular actors. It is an attempt to recapitulate the myriad pathways involved in signal transduction, protein synthesis, endocytosis, vesicular transport, cell-cell adhesion, apoptosis, and other processes. "

Now you get an idea of what the “spike” on the coronavirus sticks to when it starts to infect a cell.

Was she old when you met her, or did she get old due to your influence?

Ah yes; it's possible that post was the result on an alcohol fueled loss of control , but I have since followed the correct recovery procedure

I’m glad it’s not my galaxy:

“Hubble captures a massive black hole blazing fiery plasma trails across the cosmos,
It's about 1,000 times larger than the Milky Way's own central black hole.”

Don't you wish you could see sights like that through your binoculars?
