Light-Years of DNA
Light-year, and DNA. Not two scientific terms you expect to see on the same page, but over your lifetime your body will produce around one light-year of DNA! That is about one trillion kilometres. Don't believe me? Let's do some maths: Every cell in your bo...

Forgotten Futures - New York
What if cities looked like this? The 1920s view of cities of the future was glorious; huge buildings towering into the sky, multi-layer roads, rail and pavements, airships and aircraft, and the bold geometry of art deco. Sadly this world never came into exi...

3D Wood Grain
Using a block of wood and a plane Keith Skretch made something amazing. He snapped a picture of the wood, then planed a thin layer off, snapped another picture, planed another layer off, and repeated this hundreds of times. In the resulting timelapse/stop m...

Trypanosome Lego
Trypanosomes and Leishmania are the two tropical parasites that I do most of my research on. These cells seem to have a lot of modularity in controlling their shape, and have quite a lot of flexibility in reshuffling where particular structures (made up of ...

No, but I can send them to you! What is the best way to?

I think the 3D printing tolerance will be too low for the lego-style joins to work; but it would be quite easy to change them to a post/clip style joiner.

3D Lightning 2
It happened again! About a year ago two redditors happened to take a photo of the same lightning bolt, but from different places, and I use them to make a 3D reconstruction: http://calculatedimages.blogspot.co.uk/2013/05/3d-lightning.html Well, it happened ...

A quality Oxford pub, but with more of a local village feel. Good range of beers and food, for reasonable prices (at least by Oxford standards). Around the major meal times the kitchen is staffed by a quality chef and his food is excellent. Certainly one of the best burgers in Oxford!
