Computer artwork depicting spacetime

Spacetime. Computer artwork showing the curvature of spacetime due to the presence of a star, lead- ing to the formation of a gravitational well. Spacetime is shown here on a two-dimensional grid, with gravitational potential represented by a third dimension. A product of Einstein's theory of relativity, spacetime describes any event using four coordinates - three giving the position in space & one the time. In the presence of a gravit- ational field spacetime becomes curved. This curvature means that the shortest distance between two points is not usually a straight line but a curve. The curvature due to gravity results in light bending when it passes by a massive object

Ebola virus

Ebola virus. Coloured transmission electron micro- graph of a single Ebola virus, the cause of Ebola fever. It is one of the group of filoviruses, so- called for its thin and long shape. Here the viral filament is seen looping in on itself. A number of major outbreaks of this severe, frequently fatal viral haemorrhagic fever have occurred in equatorial Africa since 1976, one in Zaire in 1995. The virus appears similar to, but is antigenically distinct from the Marburg virus which causes green monkey disease. The illnesses from both Ebola and Marburg viruses are similar, with fever, skin rash, and haemorrhage. Death may be rapid. Magnification: x19, 000 at 6x7cm size. x66, 500 at 8x10". This is the "reston" strain of Ebola, from Philadelphia, USA
