Comet Hyakutake with aurora borealis, 16-04-96

Comet Hyakutake. Comet Hyakutake (1996 B2, lower right) with a display of the northern lightsor aurora borealis. Comets are formed from aball of ice and dust only a few km across. Whenthey approach the Sun some of the ice melts & isblown away by high-velocity charged particles fromthe Sun to form a tail. The tail is visible due tothe reflection of sunlight by dust and dischargesby excited gases. Charged particles from the Sunalso cause the aurora borealis. They becometrapped by the Earth's magnetic field and aredrawn to the poles where they excite atmosphericatoms. The atoms energy is released as light.Photographed in Alaska, USA on 16.4.96

Artwork of artery narrowed by atherosclerosis

Atherosclerosis. Illustration of a cross-section through an artery narrowed by atherosclerosis. Fat build-up (yellow) has narrowed the lumen (channel) of the artery thus restricting the blood flow. Red blood cells (red, disc shaped), yellow fatty particles and white blood cells (blue) are seen flowing through the artery. Narrowed arteries such arteries such as this are found most often in people who have a high concentration of cholesterol in their bloodstream. Narrowing of the arteries increases the risk of blood clots forming, and is associated with coronary heart disease and strokes
