RELATED: 28 PERFECTLY TIMED PHOTOS THAT WILL MAKE YOU LOOK TWICE
1. This closeup photo of Jupiter is stunning
This incredible image was actually created by citizen scientists using raw data collected from the NASA Juno spacecraft. With some color enhancement, the final product is something akin to a work of art.
Amazing to think that the chaos of Jupiter's atmosphere could be so beautiful.
2. Check out this microscopic look at a tadpole eye
Here is another unbelievable, yet real, scientific photo. This one is a zoomed-in view of a tadpole's eye structure.
The green part of the image is a fluorescently stained cell. This photo, as well as the team behind its research, managed to find that cannabinoids help improve the low-light vision of tadpoles.
3. This photo of a roosterfish's anatomy is beautiful
This incredible image from the University of Kansas is truly stunning. It was taken after developing a new technique to strip specimens of their muscles but allow them to be posed for study.
4. You won't believe this image of a glial cell is real
No this is not an image from outer space, it is actually a zoomed-in picture of a glial cell. These cells, also called astrocytes (for obvious reasons) are very common throughout the nervous system.
They act as dinner-ladies-become-janitors for other cells in the nervous system.
5. Mandatory snowflake close up
Since its that time of year, it would be remiss of us to not include a closeup of a snowflake.
It is always amazing to see how completely natural processes can produce a thing of such exquisite beauty.
6. Can you guess what this one is?
Unless you've read the text associated with the image above, you might be surprised to hear that this is a closeup image of a lightbulb. Mesmerizing, we think you'll agree.
7. Here's another amazing science photo
Scanned Electron Microscopy (SEM) is one scientific technique that always generates stunning images. This one is no exception.
But what is it? This is an image of bacteria on the surface of some human skin.
8. The sea squirts are truly stunning
This closeup image of several sea squirts is something of real beauty. The image hasn't been color enhanced, this is their real bioluminescent appearance.
This gives them an eerie, yet sublime, appearance.
9. Check out these nanofibre catch-and-release structures
And finally, here is another amazing science photo you won't believe is real. These are self-assembling synthetic nanofibers that have formed a basic capture-and-release tool that mimics similar structures in nature.
