At the CELLestial level

Presented are cells adhered to the base of a plate after loading onto a Seahorse XF Analyzer (Agilent Technologies); an instrument capable of measuring oxygen consumption and extracellular acidification.

Cells are scattered in a shimmering colour spectra across the microscope field, extending from a large, dense cluster to smaller groupings towards the edges. A certain resemblance to the cosmic arrangement of stars in galaxies ensued.

One of the many examples where an image in science can present likeness to another for the viewer, even when the aesthetic similarities are at opposite extremities of the size scale.
