This isn't an alien world — it's a representation of the winds traveling from East to West (in blue) and West to East (in red) here on Earth.
Biosciencia's insight:

Every year, Princeton chooses the best science art images of the year — here are some of the previous year's best images. This year's include the above image in "atmospheric and oceanic studies," plus a ton of others, some of which are below.

Biologists have used “squeezed light” to create the first images of a living cell that beat the diffraction limit.
Biosciencia's insight:

Today, Michael Taylor at the University of Queensland in Australia and a few pals reveal a new way to create optical images of cells that dramatically increases their resolution beyond the conventional diffraction limit. Their trick relies on a peculiar quantum phenomenon called “squeezed light” which has allowed them to resolve spatial  structures inside a living cells at a resolution of 10 nanometres; that’s a 14 per cent finer resolution than is possible with conventional techniques.
