Curiosity Finds Large Iron Meteorite on Mars JUL 15, 2014 // BY IAN O'NEILL On Curiosity’s 640th day (or sol) on Mars, as it continued its long drive to the base of Aeolis Mons (a.k.a. Mount Sharp), the robot stumbled across a fairly hefty meteorite. Shown here, the 2-meter-wide iron space rock can be seen embedded in the ruddy regolith.

May 7, 2012: The human immune system in action. This colored scanning electron microscope image shows a white blood cell (dyed red) in the act of destroying tuberculosis bacteria (yellow). The bacteria are surrounded by the cell membrane of the scavenger cell, then drawn inside and rendered harmless ideally, forever.

Streamer chamber photo of a pion-muon-electron (pi-mu-e) decay chain resulting from an antiproton annihilation. The antiproton enters from the bottom of the picture annihilates with a proton in neon gas filling the chamber; their energy materialises as 3 nuclear fragments (thick tracks) several pions (less dense tracks). One positive pion curls tightly to the right in the chamber’s magnetic field before decaying to a muon; the muon forms the spiral at top before decaying to a positron (or...

A tool to help brain surgeons test and more precisely remove cancerous tissue was successfully used during surgery. The mass spectrometry tool sprays a microscopic stream of charged solvent onto the tissue surface to gather information about its molecular makeup and produces a color-coded image that reveals the location, nature and concentration of tumor cells.

Orgasms aren’t just good for your sexual relationship; they may also promote good communication. Results of a new study reveal that in the aftermath of having experienced an orgasm, people are more likely to share important information with their partners. And, that communication is likely to be positive.

"The Lone Ranger"- Kupffer cell (specialized macrophage, green) patrolling the tiny vessels in the liver called sinusoids, where they recycle old red blood cells and ingest pathogens. The endothelium (reddish pink) of these vessels has large holes, allowing the Kupffer cells to migrate into the liver tissue at sites of damage and inflammation.
