False-colour SEM of chickweed flower Featured 23 Mar 2005 Print

False-colour SEM of chickweed flower

False-colour scanning electron micrograph of the reproductive structures of a flower of the chickweed, Stellaria media. The bulbous carpel, with the short-stalked female stigmas emerging from it, is at lower centre. Two of the long- stalked male anthers have closed in to contact the stigmas; a third remains separate at right, its tip covered with pollen. The droplets in the bottom right & left corners (blue) are nectar to attract pollinating insects. Chickweed is also self-pollinating. The round pollen grains on the stigmas show that this flower has been pollinated, probably by the anthers in contact with the stigmas. Magnification: x12 at 6x4.5cm size

Exercise Magic Carpet 2005

A Sea Harrier FA2 taking off from HMS Invincible during Exercise Magic Carpet 05.
Exercise Magic Carpet 05 (MC 05) was an Omani hosted and RAF Strike Command sponsored exercise. The exercise was an opportunity for RN, RAF, Omani, French Air Force, USAF and USN squadrons to deploy and practice heavy-weapon bomb drops, utilising the extensive ranges and relatively clear airspace available over Oman. There were a variety of aircraft which took part, including our own Sea Harriers, GR7s and SKASaC, USN F18 and S3 Viking, USAF F16, French Mirage 2000 and RAF Tornado F3, Jaguar, VC10 air to air refuelling and E3D AWACS. In total around 60 aircraft were in theatre, allowing for realistic exercising of a coalition forces.
The participation of HMS Invincible with her Tailored Air Group (TAG) gave an excellent opportunity to prove the Strike Carrier concept within a controlled exercise environment and gain some useful general warfare training. It was be a good opportunity for the ship's company to progress training in an exercise environment

Nucleolus and nuclear membrane in mouse liver cell Featured 23 Mar 2005 Print

Nucleolus and nuclear membrane in mouse liver cell

Nucleolus. Transmission electron micrograph of the nucleolus (dark circular area) in the nucleus of a mouse liver cell. The nucleolus contains unravelled DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) involved in making protein-manufacturing bodies called ribosomes. The rest of the nucleus contains a condensed form of DNA called chromatin. The double nuclear membrane can be seen in the lower part of the picture, with small pores that allow large molecules to pass out of the nucleus and into the cell cytoplasm. In the lower left is an energy- producing mitochondrion. Magnification x37, 500 at 10x8 inch size
