    Neural Couture

    These MRI and CT scan-influenced sweaters by Brooke Roberts are the coolest science fashion I’ve seen since these geometry-based garments or these developmental biology gowns.

    More at The Atlantic.

    This art print is inspired by the most powerful sentence of Carl Sagan’s scientific series, Cosmos: “The cosmos is also within us, We’re made of star stuff. We are a way for the cosmos to know itself.” -Imaginary Foundation.

    Artificial cilia seen here have been produced that can beat in sync. In nature cilia are used to propel organisms or in multicellular animals they can be found beating mucus into the mouth for you to swallow. Disgusting yet cool.

    For those of you who don’t believe there is beauty in science. This is a dissociated hippocampal neuron with an antibody stain against MAP2, a common cell body and dendritic marker. Billions of these guys make up the human brain through trillions of synaptic connections. Neurons really are beautiful.
