Incredible Photos: A Child is Born (26 pics)

Posted in Random » Awesome   21 Sep 2011   / 182662 views

Swedesh photographer Lennart Nilsson spent 12 years of his life taking pictures of the foetus developing in the womb. These incredible photographs were taken with conventional cameras with macro lenses, an endoscope and scanning electron microscope. Nilsson used a magnification of hundreds of thousands and “worked” right in the womb. His first photo of the human foetus was taken in 1965.

Will they have a date?

Two sperms are contacting with the egg cell.

 

The winning sperm.

 

Sperm.

 

5-6 days. The clump has developed into a blastocyst, containing many more cells, and has entered the womb.

 

8 days. The human embryo is attached to a wall of the uterus.

 

The brain starts to develop in the human embryo.

 

24 days. The one-month-old embryo has no skeleton yet. There is only a heart that starts beating on the 18th day.

 

4 weeks.

 

4.5 weeks.

 

5 weeks: Approximately 9 mm. You can now distinguish the face with holes for eyes, nostrils and mouth.

 

40 days. Embryonic cells form the placenta. This organ connects the embryo to the uterine wall allowing nutrient uptake, waste elimination and gas exchange via the woman’s blood supply.

 

Eight weeks. The rapidly-growing embryo is well protected in the foetal sac.

 

10 weeks. The eyelids are semi-shut. They will close completely in a few days.

 

16 weeks. The foetus uses its hands to explore its own body and its surroundings.

 

The skeleton consists mainly of flexible cartridge. A network of blood vessels is visible through the thin skin.

 

18 weeks: Approximately 14 cm. The foetus can now perceive sounds from the outside world.

 

19 weeks.

 

20 weeks: Approximately 20 cm. Woolly hair, known as lanugo, covers the entire head.

 

24 weeks.

 

26 weeks.

 

6 months. There are still 8-10 weeks ahead, so the little human is getting ready to leave the uterus. It turns upside down because it will be easier to get out this way.

 

36 weeks. The child will see the world in 4 weeks.

I initially came to this comic beuscae I heard Erica Henderson was doing the art for this comic. I enjoyed the vast majority of her run and the story ran great together.When she left as artist, I still stayed on beuscae I had grown attached to the story and the characters. The tongue and cheek nature of the strip was endearing in some bizarre way and things came together to present something that was honestly enjoyable. I (and many others I presume) was rewarded with a tremendour cliffhanger that had us practically counting down the days/hours until the next update.Then we had the genre shift which leaves me at a loss. I will outright say that I'm not a fan of the shift beuscae it trivializes the world we've come to know and love. The characters have all but been explained to have been constructs in some shape or form and that takes away the immersion. The genre shift takes away from the world Arkerra exists in for me, and makes it not as appealing for me.Will I stop reading? *shrugs* If the story stops going in a direction I like, then yes. If it gets back into the mix of things that helped make the comic great, then I may continue reading. I still believe the genre shift was the wrong choice, but that would not be my call to make, but the writer's.Then again, maybe I'm just grumpy that we got stuck with a cliffhanger that wasn't on its way to resolution by the next update.

I find the world shift to be quite intriguing. Considering the petintoal that comes from the combination of technology and magic, I find it the most plausible possibilities to be that: (1) Arkerra and Sepia World are separate dimensions, possibly alternate Earths of each other, or (2) Arkerra is Sepia World-in-the-Past. While I acknowledge the possibility of it simply being a game world, I find that the evidence points to something more.Also first post! :)
