Uncommon Descent Serving The Intelligent Design Community

Drew Berry’s animations of unseeable biology



Billions of cells inside us, copying with complete fidelity.

Featherweight songbird is a long-distance champ Excerpt: A tiny songbird weighing just two tablespoons of sugar migrates from the Arctic to Africa and back, a distance of up to 29,000 kilometres (18,000 miles), scientists reported on Wednesday. http://www.physorg.com/news/2012-02-featherweight-songbird-long-distance-champ.html
Hmm, reminds me of this recent quote in response to the claim that 747's display 'better design' than birds:
Can Humans Improve on Nature? If So, What Does it Mean for Intelligent Design? - February 9, 2012 Excerpt: Now if they can create an impedance pump that builds itself from materials in its environment and copies itself flawlessly for thousands of generations without human intervention, or build a superhydrophobic carbon nanotube array that produces seeds that grow into beautiful works of art as well as functional systems, or design a 747 that lays eggs that hatch into new 747s, then they will really be something to talk about. http://www.evolutionnews.org/2012/02/can_humans_impr055981.html

Here is a video clip spliced together, with pieces of Drew Berry's work, that has Centrioles, which consist of nine microtubule triplets arranged like the blades of a tiny turbine, thrown in the mix:
