This is so cool, guy lost his left arm and has it replaced with a robotic prosthetic...apparently he can preset the arm to complete simple, automatic functions.

Awesome huh?

There are those who like a bit of the strange now and then, as they say.

Anyway, back to science images--

It's a sort of tie-dyed image of the Crab Nebula. The colors are artificial; each of five different hues in the image of the nebula represent what is seen through five different telescopes. Far out, man!

I really like this sign, it is after all an awesome scientific image.

It is a map of our metabolic reactions, in particular how we get energy (ATP).  I once knew all those as had to remember them for an A Level Biology exam.  The stupid things we have to commit to memory for exams when in the real world we can just look them up!

That is one reason why I became an organic chemist. Organic chemistry is very mechanistic, so one only has to remember a few basic principles. One basic principle is how electrons behave and move around. That allows you to figure out what will happen in any reaction, without the need to remember recipes. It's like playing chess: learn a few basic rules and you can start playing. But then creativity kicks in and some people become great chemists, while others don't.
