A video illustrating a typical practical magnification range of a scanning electron microscope designed for biological specimens. The video starts at 25x, about 6 mm across the whole field of view, and zooms in to 12000x, about 12 μm across the whole field of view. The spherical objects are glass beads with a diameter of 10 μm, similar in diameter to a red blood cell.

The Ant Death Spiral

Very often, people refer to ants system as a role model of society. But here is the proof, they do the very same stupid stuff we do: the infamous ant death spiral:

It's a circular mill, first described in Army Ants by Schneirla (1944). A circle of army ants, each one following the ant in front, becomes locked into a circular mill. They will continue to circle each other until they all die.

Via The Ant Room.

Past Perfect
Past Perfect

He who controls the present, controls the past. He who controls the past, controls the future. – George Orwell

Photo series about Egyptian war museum by UK photographer Jason Larkin: The museum, an institution to preserve and interpret the material evidence of the human race, has a long history, springing from an innate human desire to collect and interpret the world around us. By deciding how the past is presented and memorialized, museums not only preserve the past, they also play an important role in the construction of our ideologies, identities and the understanding and interpretation of ourselves.
