Lol I thought this was sausage at first, but they're rusty chains

I love how you can see the cells embedded in/passing through the vein wall. Ruptured venule under scanning electron microscope.

Red blood cells exposed inside a torn venule. A venule is a very small blood vessel in the microcirculation that allows deoxygenated blood to return from the capillary beds to veins.

MICROSCOPIC HAIRS IN INNER EAR:  Inner ear help divers (like the one in today's pic) know their up down orientation in water.  Sounds under water are magnified. When we hear sounds (whether under water or above) microscopic hairs in our inner ears vibrate.

The cancer cell's pink mitochondria and gold endoplasmic reticulum--a network of vesicles and sacs--swirl around a dark nucleus. The rendering was awarded an honorable mention in the illustration category of the 2008 International Science and Engineering Visualization Challenge.     Donald Bliss and Sriram Subramaniam of the National Institutes of Health's National Library of Medicine created the image by "sandblasting" the cell with ions of the element gallium.
