Gold Ion Collision - BW0427
Computer display showing the tracks of hundreds of charged subatomic particles created in, and radiating outwards from, a collision of two 30-billion electron-volt gold beams in the STAR detector at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider at Brookhaven National Laboratory. The collider aims to recreate the soup-like plasma of quarks and gluons which is believed to have existed millionths of a second after the Big Bang, when the universe first formed.

Artwork of the Chicxulub asteroid impact - SC5453
Asteroid impact. Illustration of a large asteroid colliding with Earth on the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico. This impact is believed to have led to the death of the dinosaurs some 65 million years ago. The impact formed the Chicxulub crater, which is around 200 kilometres wide. The impact would have thrown trillions of tons of dust into the atmosphere, cooling the Earth's climate significantly, which may have been responsible for the mass extinction. A layer of iridium- rich rock, known as the K/T boundary, is thought to be the remnants of the impact debris.

Olfactory nerves in the brain. Computer artwork of a person's head showing the brain inside. The highlighted area shows the olfactory nerves where they reach the brain. The olfactory nerves are the first cranial nerves and carry scent information from the nose to the brain. They are a collection of nerve rootlets which extend from the olfactory bulb in the brain to the olfactory epithelium, the area of the nose which intercepts scents. There are two olfactory nerves, one on each side of the face.
