Digital dissection coolness


This is so cool. A one-millimeter long spider (Cenotextricella simoni) encased in amber gets "digitally dissected" using Very High Resolution X-Ray Computed Tomography. The paper is online in Zootaxa 1623:47-53 but requires a subscription.

    Way cool, and that’s from a civilian.

    Does anyone else have a sudden craving for crab legs and watching the original “Alien” movie.
