    Feeling Squishy

    How squishy are your cells? UCLA’s Amy Rowat studies the texture or squishiness of cells. A cell’s texture can actually tell us important information about our health, and even begin to answer long-held questions about diseases like cancer.

    The GIF above is a diagram of a microfluidic device (based on a drawing by Amy), which she uses to measure the cell’s softness or malleability.

    My own feeling is that science fiction, of all the different forms of literature, is the one that most easily accepts the notion of change. Things are changing very quickly, and any kid who thinks about it knows that the world in which he or she will be a grown-up — which he or she will be helping to run — will be considerably different from this one. Maybe better, maybe worse, but different. Science fiction explores the future world.

    I think more and more young people are beginning to feel that science fiction is the kind of literature that a person interested in reality should be reading.


    - Isaac Asimov

    A while back, I asked why it is that some science fiction is so good at predicting the future. Far and away, the most common answer was because people who read science fiction are then inspired to make that future a reality.

    Asimov knew that.

    Check out more from his 1983 interview with Dr. Julius Strangepork in Muppets magazine (yes, seriously) at Brain Pickings.

    What’s in store for me in the direction i don’t take?

    “… the moments when everything is open, when all options are present, and all is undecided – mere destinies unfolding. Our choices shift into one plane of existence, the extension of every path still available, until we pick the red tie instead of the blue; harbor anger instead of compassion; attempt to fix it or break it; and all our possibilities collapse into the singular of what is, rippling outward from the moment of decision to affect our lives in ways unknown… The noise at the back of our mind wondering anxiously, What’s in store for me in the direction I don’t take?”
