An opinion article in a Nature publication about treating Zika as a pathogen similar to others that can cross the placenta barrier and infect the fetus. Even if you just skim over it, you will get a great overview of what we know and don't know about how Zika infects the fetus. "Abstract

The recent association between Zika virus (ZIKV) infection during pregnancy and fetal microcephaly has led to a renewed interest in the mechanisms by which vertically transmitted microorganisms reach the fetus and cause congenital disease. In this Opinion article, we provide an overview of the structure and cellular composition of the human placenta and of the mechanisms by which traditional 'TORCH' pathogens (Toxoplasma gondii, other, rubella virus, cytomegalovirus and herpes simplex virus) access the fetal compartment. Based on our current understanding of ZIKV pathogenesis and the developmental defects that are caused by fetal ZIKV infection, ZIKV should be considered a TORCH pathogen and future research and public health measures should be planned and implemented accordingly."
There are several pathways by which Zika virus (ZIKV), and other TORCH (Toxoplasma gondii, other, rubella virus, cytomegalovirus (CMV), herpes simplex virus (HSV)) pathogens, might be vertically transmitted. Pathogens might invade by several routes and these routes can vary depending on the ...

"On the floor of San Diego Comic-Con, I happened to stumble upon this Cutaway Ship Replica of the Falcon at the QMx booth. Now, I’m sure plenty of people on the internet have drawn detailed maps of the Falcon but, having never searched them out before, I was in awe at this piece.
[...]
Unfortunately, according to QMx, this is still in the prototype phase so there’s no guarantee it’ll ever get released. But it’s still just insanely cool."
I’m probably not alone in saying I was always curious what else was in the Millennium Falcon. We saw the cockpit, the large hangout area, some hallways and guns, but what else is there? A new collectable revealed at Comic-Con shows exactly that.
