On a Small World

Over the past few days we have examined the microscopic world – that small world of cells serving as the basic life form for all living things. It is interesting how our own cells from the liver, brain, bone, small intestines, and skin look nothing like each other, yet they have many similar parts while the cells themselves performing different, but specialized functions.

Whether the world of crystals, living things, or natural and man-made nonliving materials, we see that nature the beautiful designs of nature that inspires artists across the globe. Yet, all the designs and parts work together to make our planet go – the planet that is a mere speck in the universe. Considering the journey from small to large – oh how grand it is. Enjoy this video with more sights of our small world set to soothing music.

On a Small World

Yesterday journey started at the subatomic level, displayed on Earth in the beautiful city of Venus, and only to drop us off somewhere in deep space. Simply wow – the scale of it all.

I appreciate deep space. After all, most of my headers (including this one) have been images from the Hubble Telescope. (See my Past Headers page).

Although the universe is vast, telescopes as Hubble have brought something very far away seem so person and close. On the other hand, let us not forget the beauty of the microscopic world. Who would have ever thought that cells, bacteria, and viruses within the human body had such intricate beauty.

PS: I have one more tomorrow.
