Eerie, beautiful, captivating images of sea urchins mating and being born (that little triangle guy is a baby sea urchin).

These are a glimpse of how life begins in the deep ocean — and there’s a lot of life down there. The oceans provide about 190 times as much living space as every other space on Earth — soil, air and fresh water — put together. A vast array of amazing creatures live in the depths of this watery world. Squid, jellyfish, and plankton are just a few of our favorites (all shown as tiny babies in that last gif).

I’m strongly urchin you to fall in love with echinoderms. Such superb sea symmetry.

Highly anisotropic supernova explosions of a 15 solar mass star in two different computer simulations showing the color coded the gas velocities at one second after the start of the neutrino-driven explosion (first two images above), and, onset of a neutrino-driven explosion in a three-dimensional computer simulation (next ones).

"Endocytosis is subject to extensive and complex regulation and has a major role in cell signaling, cell-cell communication, and interactions between cells and their environment. In this issue [of Cell], Liberali et al. present a comparative, unbiased, and quantitative study of regulatory interactions between signaling, membrane traffic, and the cytoskeleton. They develop a hierarchical map of regulatory genetic interactions in membrane trafficking based upon their discovery of emergent properties of the endocytic membrane system and the evolution of its complexity as well as distinct regulatory programs that control subsets of endocytic activities and organelles. Cover artwork created by Lavinia Liberali and Luca Pitoni.” Via.

These genetically unusual butterflies have one male and one female wing, proving that something doesn’t have to be symmetrical to be beautiful.

Beautiful bilateral gynandromorphs!!
