Watch a Single Cell Grow Into a Full Organism
You’ll want to take six minutes out of your day to watch this unforgettable transformation of a single-cell zygote into an alpine newt. Titled “Becoming,” Dutch photographer and filmmaker Jan van IJken says it’s “a short film about the miraculous genesis of animal life.”
According to Petapixel, Van IJken was able to capture the cell division and differentiation that occurs in the formation of all animals. He managed to take the shots at a microscopic scale., condensing three weeks into just six minutes.
