Messier objects, full set Featured Crab Print

Messier objects, full set

Messier objects. These 110 astronomical objects were catalogued by the French astronomer Charles Messier (1730-1817), a comet hunter who wanted to list the permanent objects in the sky that might be mistaken for comets. They range from the Crab nebula (M1) at top left to the dwarf elliptical galaxy M110 at bottom right. Other notable Messier objects include the Orion nebula (M42, upper left), the Ring nebula (M57, centre right) and the Whirlpool galaxy (M51, centre left edge). Trying to observe all 110 objects in one night is known as the Messier Marathon. This is easiest to accomplish in the spring in the Northern Hemisphere

Pubic louse, SEM Featured Crab Print

Pubic louse, SEM

Pubic louse. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a pubic louse (Phthirus pubis), also known as the crab louse, clinging to human hair. An infestation of P. pubis causes pediculosis, the symptoms of which are severe itching and a rash. The lice feed by sucking blood and are spread through sharing bedding and clothing, or by sexual contact. Each of the louse's six legs ends in a massive claw, which folds inward to meet a thumb- like projection on the opposite side. These claws allow the louse to climb and swing through its hairy habitat, locking into position when disturbed. Magnification: x60 when printed 10cm wide

A well-preserved fossil trilobite Featured Crab Print

A well-preserved fossil trilobite

Trilobite. A well-preserved fossil trilobite. The dorsal exoskeleton of the trilobite is clearly visible as ridges running across the top of the fossil. This is divided into three parts by longitudinal furrows. The head (at top) has the eyes of the animal (not clearly differentiated here). The trilobites are an extinct group of once common marine arthropods. They existed from the Cambrian to the Permian geological eras (from 590 to 286 million years ago). Most species are thought to have lived on the sea floor like modern day crabs. Their flexible backs allowed them to roll up into a tight ball when being attacked by predators
