The Miracle of the Cell

Wow. This is an animation showing the miracle of everyday life of some of your cells. This is only a small snapshot of the amazing sub-cellular world. There is narration, but I understood less than 1% of what was said. The wow-factor is in what the proteins and other stuff actually does. It is like pure science-fiction, yet it is constantly occurring... within you. Don't be fooled by the scientific talk. Watching those proteins walk, proteins replicate, things make their own rafts to float on, and watching cells create and destroy its own rail transport system, you get a feeling there's a Big Guy up above happy that these Harvard geniuses made this animation.
