The Inner Life of the Cell by BioVisions at Harvard

Check out this very cool computer animation titled:

The Inner Life of the Cell

produced by BioVisions at Harvard University

I really enjoyed being able to show this movie to my two young daughters and explain what is actually occurring within our bodies. Images like these are a great way to engage the general public that may otherwise be intimidated and untrustful of current scientific progress. It is also a terrific way to get young potential scieintists interested in pursuing careers in science.

Please feel free to post your reactions and/or comments to this movie.

Hi Tony,
Thank you very much for sharing. This is hands down one of the best videos I've ever seen of the inner workings of a cell. It is not only the high quality graphics and animations, but the subtle artistic representation of many of the phenomena that occur in a cell.
Beautiful.
