Optical image of globular cluster Omega Centauri

Omega Centauri globular star cluster. True-colour optical image of the globular star cluster Omega Centauri (NGC 5139). This is one of the largest and brightest globular clusters in our galaxy. It lies around 16, 500 light years away in the constellation Centaurus. It is thought to be around 620 light years in diameter, and contains over a million stars. Globular clusters tend to be very old, and at 10, 000 million years old, this is one of the oldest known. Omega Centauri is one of the many globular clusters which form a spherical halo around our galaxy. This image was produced by digitally combining photographs taken by the UK Schmidt Telescope in blue and red light

Tinted SEM of Shetland wool from knitted pullover

False colour scanning electron micrograph of Shetland wool taken from a knitted pullover. Wool is the hair of sheep & reveals a similar structure as human hair. The cuticle or outer layer (visible here) is scaly. Beneath this is the cortex, the bulk of hair & which contains hair pigments. At the centre is the medulla, which may be hollow. Hair cells are dead except for a layer at the base of the root. Cells here continue to divide forming new cells while pushing the older ones upward. Wool serves as a protection against inclement weather. Magnification: X143 at 35mm size, & X1000 at 10X8 inch size. Original is BW print H120/038
