“Exploding neurosphere” - Neural stem cells. Neurospheres are composed of neural stem cells which are the precursors to neurons in the developing brain. In this image, a neurosphere for proteins has been stained. It regulates neurodevelopment to determine whether they are highly expressed at this stage of development.

Researchers and students from Illawarra Health and Medical Research Institute (IHMRI), Wollongong University (UOW), and Illawarra Shoalhaven Local Health District (ISLHD) are conducting research on motor neuron disease (MND). IHMRI PhD candidate Rachelle Balez and Research Assistant Clare Watson developed the idea for a science art exhibition after recognizing the beauty and creativity in their work and that of their colleagues. There were 55 images taken by researchers which were presented at the art exhibition ‘Magnified’ which also acted as a fundraiser for MND. Other researchers from materials science, chemistry, engineering, and environmental biology have also contributed to the exhibition. Leica Microsystems sponsored this event and is publishing a selection of the ‘science art’ images.
Alya and I are searching for women astronomers and chatting about them.
I am so glad to share this post about Maria Mitchell. I felt so close to her, having found we have the same birthday and also a common “love of astronomy”.
Maria Mitchell was the first professional female astronomer and the first female astronomy professor in the United States. She was also the first American scientist to discover a comet.
She was born on August 1, 1818 in Nantucket, Massachusetts. Her father inspired her as a teacher and astronomer. At age 16, after completing her education, Maria opened a school, training girls in math and science. In 1836, she started to work as the librarian of the Nantucket Atheneum.
On October 1, 1847, at age 29, using a two-inch telescope, Maria Mitchell discovered the comet that would be named “Miss Mitchell's Comet”. She was awarded a gold medal from King Frederick VI of Denmark and became the first woman elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 1848. In 1865, she became Professor of Astronomy at the newly-founded Vassar College and director of the Vassar College Observatory where she had access to a twelve-inch telescope, the third largest in the United States.
Mitchell was one of the leaders in the formation of the American Association for the Advancement of Women (AAW) (American Association of University Women, today). In 1876, during 4th Congress of AAW, she presented a paper entitled “The Need for Women in Science.”
Maria Mitchell died on June 28, 1889. Her telescope is in the collections of the Smithsonian Museum of American History in Washington, DC.
Later astronomers honored her by naming a lunar crater on the moon for Maria Mitchell.
Be nice. This is my very first attempt at video editing. Short clip of me in my element some weeks ago. Had lots of fun playing around with the app, and I already have some fun and interesting ideas I’d like to try. Hope to find the time to edit more videos soon ✌️

These are pretty cool, but I’ve seen a planet named COROT-7b which rains rock. 🤯. To me that’s awesome. Although I would not want to live there😂. Follow @dankscience7 and check my link in bio for amazing science gear. #sciencefiction but real. Credit: @science_and_food
