A Beautiful time-lapse of HeLa Cell Division
This simple, gorgeous image of a HeLa cell (the cancer cell line commonly used for cell biology) undergoing mitosis is my favorite photograph from the 2012 Wellcome Image Awards.  Imagine, every cell that make up you and I undergo the same process.  

This composite confocal micrograph uses time-lapse microscopy to show a cancer cell (HeLa) undergoing cell division (mitosis). The DNA is shown in red, and the cell membrane is shown in cyan. The round cell in the centre has a diameter of 20 microns.

Just think: you began as two half-cells that became one, which then divided just like this, next to perfectly every time, until there were ~10 trillion cells in your body. Mighty mitosis.

kitkat0120 reblogged your photo: Henrietta Lacks’ “Immortal” Cells

I wish more people knew the story behind these cells and the woman they came from. Such an impact on modern science.

Guys, read The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks. It’s reallllllllly good.

Agreed. I know for a fact we used these cells in school, and I just want to ask every one of my fellow students if they know the story behind them. Because I bet they don’t, and it’s a shame.

Not a single one of the cells that compose you knows who you are, or cares.

A typical human cell is about one one-hundredth of a millimeter across.
