Blood clot on plaster, SEM Featured 4 Sep 2003 Image

Blood clot on plaster, SEM

Blood clot on plaster. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of blood clotting on the surface of a sticking plaster used to dress a small cut. Red blood cells (erythrocytes) are trapped in filaments of fibrin protein (brown). The fibres of the absorbent material of the plaster are also seen (grey). When an injury occurs, platelets (not seen) in the blood stimulate the formation of fibrin filaments, which enmesh platelets and red and white blood cells. The fibrin contracts around them to form a solid clot. Sticking plasters are used to help stop bleeding, and to keep an injury clean and dry during healing. Magnification: x830 when printed 10cm wide


Grid computer farm Featured 4 Sep 2003 Image

Grid computer farm

Grid supercomputers. Fish-eye lens view of a room packed with supercomputers, forming a "PC farm" with immense processing power. These computers are at CERN, the European Particle Physics laboratory near Geneva, Switzerland. They are being prepared to accept and analyse data from the new Large Hadron Collider (LHC). The LHC will smash particles together in an effort to find their constituents, and will generate millions of gigabytes of data. This is also being used as a test run for The Grid, a network of computers that can share processing power. This means that a standard desktop computer connected to The Grid can be used to perform powerful calculations
