Luke Jerram makes glass replicas of viruses and bacteria, magnified by about 1 million times. Crystal life.
This little bit of wonder infects E. coli bacteria (above), clamping on and injecting its DNA through its tail and into the bacteria. The DNA takes over, triggering replication of virus cells until the host cell explodes with a shower of new T4′s. Wow.
