Coloured TEM of a rubella (German measles) virus

Rubella virus. Coloured transmission electron micrograph (TEM) of a single rubella virus, the causative agent of German measles. It consists of a lipoprotein coat or capsid (yellow) and a core containing single-stranded genetic RNA material (pink). The virus diameter is about 60 nanometres. Rubella belongs to the togavirus group of viruses. German measles is spread in airborne droplets, and occurs commonly in children as a mild rash. Rubella is a risk to unborn babies if the mother contracts the disease in the first four months of pregnancy. Rubella vaccine is now routinely given to young babies, which provides lasting immunity.

Thermogram of a telephone Featured 9 Aug 2002 Print

Thermogram of a telephone

Thermogram of a telephone receiver. Thermograms show the emission of infrared radiation, displaying it as colour-coded surface temperatures. The range shown is from 23 degrees Celsius (purple), through blue, green and yellow, up to 35 degrees Celsius (red). The hand is gripping the telephone receiver very tightly. The fingers have less blood flow as a result and are therefore cooler (green yellow) than the rest of the arm. The telephone receiver is also hot (red) indicating that the plastic has absorbed heat from the hand
