Inner Life of a Cell--Harvard Biovisions

For all you science geeks out there, I would have to say when it comes to cell biology, this is one of the most amazing animations I have ever seen:

See if you can recognize what you see (I've recognized almost all of it).

PS For all the theists, I would say that such beauty and glory of God can even be found in such microscopic size!

By the way, there is an 8 minute narrated explanation, but try not to cheat first  ;)

WOW!!!
This is amazing! We never had the benefit of animations like this when I was at Uni 20 years ago! The closest we got was a black and white microsopic movie of cellular division! All the stuff in this animation, I studied in the form of individual still images. This is the first time I've seen it put together in action!
Thanks for this, I've bookmarked the page!

If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

This is Very Cool Indeed.  Now where does one find the narrated version.  I recognized some of what was happening, but I'd like to know all of the processes.

This is simply beautiful. I love hearing about microscopic and cosmic forms of life; anything so big or so small confounds me, but it is amazing to see that God put just as much intricacy into those things as he did things my size.

A fantastic video.
"O Cross of Christ, all-holy, thrice-blessed, and life-giving, instrument of the mystical rites of Zion, the holy Altar for the service of our Great Archpriest, the blessing - the weapon - the strength of priests, our pride, our consolation, the light in our hearts, our mind, and our steps"
