This is but one of the Best Science Pictures of last year that have just been announced:
… A Russian team led by Ivan Konstantinov analyzed data from more than a hundred scientific journals to digitally depict HIV as close to the real thing as possible. The two-tone color scheme shows HIV (orange) attacking and fusing with an immune cell (gray). The triangular cut-away shows how the virus integrates itself to turn the cell into a virus factory…
It’s kind of scary coming face to face with this monster… Especially if one has witnessed (far too often) firsthand the horrific pain that it inflicts upon the human suffer… Evil indeed, has a face.
The other pictures are at National Geographic here.
