"Life: Magnified" Online - A Web companion to the 2014 exhibit at Washington Dulles International Airport

Life: Magnified is an exhibit of scientific images showing cells and other scenes of life magnified by as much as 50,000 times. The exhibit is on display at Washington Dulles International Airport's Gateway Gallery from June through November 2014.

Here we feature high-resolution versions of all 46 images in the collection along with longer captions than in the airport exhibit.

In this online gallery, you'll see cells from all around the body—brain, blood, eye, skin, liver, muscle. Each type of cell teaches different lessons about how life works.

Many of the images come from so-called model organisms like mice, fruit flies and zebrafish. These creatures have much in common with us, including a large proportion of their genes. Studying them speeds scientific progress to better understand human health and disease.
