Friday beautiful science

Today's Friday beautiful science is a shot of bacteria spreading across a petri plate, with false color added to make them more beautiful. This looks like a Bacillus mycoides type of growth, but I couldn't find the identity on the original website.

Go on over to Eshel Ben-Jacob's website, where there are all kinds of beautifully rendered shots of bacterial growth.

What a lovely picture. I'd put it up on my wall

I confess, more than one of my Friday beautiful science series hangs framed in my living room and dining room... One of them was even signed by the electron microscopist. (Yep, I'm that much of a nerd).
