    Color Changing Milk by stevespanglerscience: Some very unusual things happen when you mix a little milk, food coloring, and a drop of liquid soap. #Kids #Science #Color_Changing_Milk #stevespanglerscience

    Brain. The brain is an electrochemical machine that processes through binary code - zeroes and ones that create patterns of experiences and realities. Reality is a consciousness program (hologram, simulation, illusion, dream) created by digital codes. Numbers, numeric codes, define our existence and experiences. Human DNA, our genetic memory, triggers (remembers) by digital codes at specific times and frequencies as we experience.

    Chimera cat is one individual organism, but genetically its own fraternal twin. A chimera is typically formed from four parent cells (either two fertilized eggs, or two early embryos that have fused together). When the organism forms, the cells that had already begun to develop in the separate embryos keep their original phenotypes and appearances. This means that the resulting animal is a mixture of tissues and can look like this gorgeous (but bizarre) kitty.

    G-actin is a protein involved in muscle contraction. It forms loose bundles that self-organize into regular patterns. The image was captured using total internal reflectance fluorescence (TIRF) microscopy. Dennis Breitsprecher

    these eye-popping images will make you exclaim outloud! Pinning so I can finish looking later, I only got to 11, and wow!

    Rainbow Map of the Brain by M. D. Van Wedeen reveals an orderly lattice of nerve fibers that intersect at roughly right angles, much simpler than had been suspected. via Greg Miller, ScienceNOW #Brain #Neuroscience #M_D_Van_Weeden #ScienceNow #Greg_Miller

    "Bone grown from human embryonic stem cells. Human embryonic stem cells can now be used to grow bone tissue grafts for use in research and potential therapeutic application. The study is the first example of using bone cell progenitors derived from human embryonic stem cells to grow compact bone tissue in quantities large enough to repair centimeter-sized defects."

    see a human embryo hatching in the bottom right panel. A human embryo must hatch out of its membrane in order for implantation in the uterus to occur. These images are from day 0-7 of a human embryo (key below) Top Row: Left: fertilized egg • Middle: 8 cell (day 3)embryo • Right: cell adhesion Bottow Row: Left: morula • Middle: blastocyst (day 5) • Right: hatching embryo

    Cambridge, MA (Scicasts) – Neuroscientists at MIT have found that an enzyme overproduced in the brains of Alzheimer’s patients creates a blockade that shuts off genes necessary to form new memories. Furthermore, by inhibiting that enzyme in mice, the researchers were able to reverse Alzheimer’s symptoms.

    How incredibly beautiful. Here we're looking at part of a 3-light-year tall pillar of cool hydrogen gas that is slowly being worn away by radiation from other stars...

    Researchers have determined the genome of a fetus using only a blood sample from a pregant woman, and a saliva specimen from the father.

    This is what happens when you microwave a bar of Ivory soap! Then you can tear it up, color it, and mold it into shapes! It's not wet and messy, either! This is awesome!

    How to make an egg shell disappear without touching it. Lots of fun science experiments on this website, along with explanations for the kiddos.

    Aerogel, also know as frozen smoke, is the world’s lowest density solid, clocking in at 96% air. If you hold a small piece in your hand, it’s practically impossible to either see or feel, but if you poke it, it’s like styrofoam. It supports up to 4,000 times its own weight and can withstand a direct blast from two pounds of dynamite. It’s also the best insulator in existence.

    Scientific Illustrations - lots of pictures...I'd like to frame some of these
