Johannes Hevelius, Polish astronomer

Johannes Hevelius (1611-1687), Polish astronomer (far left) at a meeting, historical artwork. At centre is an allegoric figure personifying the Sun. To the right of this figure is the mathematician and astronomer Ulugh Beg (1394-1449), also known as Muhammad Taragay. Hevelius was the founder of lunar topography: in 1647 he published his Selenographia, a chart of the Moon's surface that took four years to compile. As well as this, he observed sunspots and discovered four comets, and detailed the variability of the star Omicron Ceti, which he named Mira. He also introduced several new constellations whose names are still in use today, including Lynx, Lacerta and Vulpecula


Acinetobacter baumannii bacteria, SEM Featured 11 Aug 2005 Image

Acinetobacter baumannii bacteria, SEM

Acinetobacter baumannii bacteria, coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM). This bacterium has developed resistance to a number of antibiotics and is increasingly seen in opportunistic infections in hospitals. It typically infects the lungs, leading to a form of pneumonia. It can develop resistance to antibiotics even as they are being used to treat an infection. Because of this, and because it is generally found in weakened patients, the mortality rate for infections with A. baumannii is high. In healthy individuals, however, it is a normal part of the skin flora. Magnification: x11, 000 when printed 10 centimetres wide
