Norwich - Its Quicker by Rail, LNER poster, 1930s

Poster produced for the London & North Eastern Railway (LNER), to promote rail services to Norwich, Norfolk. The poster shows a view of Norwich from the river, where several boats are moored. One of the most notable buildings of Norwich, a Norman castle, is visible in the distance. Artwork by Frank Henry Mason, who was educated at HMS Conway and spent time at sea. He painted marine and coastal subjects and was involved in engineering and shipbuilding. He designed railway posters for the North Eastern Railway (NER), Great Western Railway (GWR) and London & North Eastern Railway (LNER). Dimensions: 1016 mm x 635 mm

Simulated space ice

Simulated space ice. Light micrograph of vesicles (round structures) in ice formed under conditions simulating those in space. Mixtures of the common space molecules, such as water, ammonia and simple hydrocarbons, were frozen at low temperatures and then exposed to ultraviolet radiation to simulate sunlight. The vesicles, 10 micrometres wide, show membrane-like properties, a possible precursor to cellular life. Products from the experiments also included complex biological molecules. The results support the theories that the origin of Earth, and other life, involved space ices impacting planets and depositing organic materials.

DNA fingerprints: banding on DNA autoradiograms

DNA fingerprints. Banding patterns on DNA sequenc- ing autoradiograms forming "genetic fingerprints" which enables genes to be mapped. The pattern of black bands gives the sequence of base pairs that form the genetic code for a section of DNA. A sample of DNA has been cut into fragments by an enzyme and marked with a radioactive tag for sequencing. The DNA fragments are then separated by electrophoresis in an agarose gel, moving different distances along the gel according to their size. The result is this banding pattern which is unique to each person. DNA fingerprints can be used to prove whether people are related, and can help to identify and convict criminals
