Cancer cell death. Coloured Scanning Electron Micrograph (SEM) showing a killer T-lymphocyte (orange) inducing a cancer cell (mauve) to undergo Programmed Cell Death (PCD).

Melanoma Cell; ion-abrasion SEM. Here, the nucleus is the dark sphere, engulfed by mitochondria (in pink) and endoplasmic reticulum (in gold).

Melanoma Cell

A melanoma cell. It is seen here by an ion-abrasion scanning electron microscope that uses a method of 3D imaging being developed at the U.S. National Cancer Institute. The microscope sends beams of gallium ions across an object, blasting away layers of the surface 20 nanometers at a time. By scanning each newly created surface, the microscope can compile three-dimensional images with unprecedented detail and resolution, says image creator Donald Bliss, a medical illustrator at the National…

✯ Nerve cells and glial cells, coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM). The nerve cells have small cell bodies (pink) and fine extensions called axons and dendrites (mauve). The glial cells have large cell bodies (brown) with thicker extensions (mauve). Neurons are responsible for passing information around the central nervous system (CNS) and from the CNS to the rest of the body. Glial cells are nervous system cells that provide the neurons with structural support and protection.✯

The current widely held theory of the universe. — myscienceacademy.org

The current widely held theory of the universe is that at some point, around roughly 13.7 billion years ago, everything that is, was and will ever be was packed into a tight little package from which sprung the big bang, which then violently hurtled everything we see into existence. To some scientists, 13.7 billion years …

This is what it looks like when cancer gets smacked down by a T cell

This incredible video captures a showdown between cancer cells and the T cells that act as the shock troops for your immune system. That's right - you're actually watching a T cell defeat cancer.
