Back in 1995, a graduate student saw something so strange that he had trouble getting it published.

Scientists had long known that cancer cells can metastasize to distant parts of the body. But no one had seen what Friedl had caught in his microscope: a phalanx of cancer cells moving as one through a network of fibers.

Two decades later, biologists have become increasingly convinced that mobile clusters of tumor cells cause 90 percent of all cancer deaths. But it wasn’t until 2013 that Friedl really understood what he was seeing, that cells could be packed together so tightly that they become a unit. He finally published one of the first papers applying the concept to experimental measurements of cancer cells.

And a completely new way to suppress metastasis.

The alien predators arrived. Within two years, everyone was dead. Almost.

It is a true story. Not long ago, not very far away.
