Space suits Featured Print

Space suits

Space suits hanging in a row from hooks. These space suits, known as Extravehicular Mobility Units (EMUs), have been designed for use during shuttle missions and allow the astronauts to spacewalk independently of the space craft. The suit consists of many components including a one- piece undergarment carrying cooling pipes, a semi- rigid upper torso section and a flexible lower torso/leg section. A helmet, gloves and Primary Life Support Subsystem (PLSS) can be fitted to the suit. These suits can be re-used, which was not the case for previous space suits

Dog tapeworm, SEM Featured Print

Dog tapeworm, SEM

Dog tapeworm (Taenia pisiformis), coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM). This tapeworm has dogs and foxes as its final hosts and rabbits and hares as its intermediate hosts. The hooks (red) at the tip of the head (scolex) are used to anchor the worm to its host's intestinal lining. It does not possess a digestive tract and so absorbs nutrients from the half-digested food of the host through the segments, or proglottids, of its body. The proglottids also have both male and female sex organs and therefore are able to produce eggs. The eggs are released into the host's intestines and are expelled with the faeces
