Stunning images prove that science and beauty can co-exist

Light micrograph of a mouse embryo, approximately 10.5 days post-fertilisation by Jim Swoger. The specimen was stained with a fluorescent marker that highlights the presence of precursor cells to nerve tissue then chemically treated to make it optically transparent. It was scanned using Selective Plane Illumination Microscopy to produce a series of optical 'slices' that were combined to generate a virtual 3D model of the embryo. (BNPS/RPS/Jim Swoger)
