This is the kind of magic you see when you attach a video camera to a microsope. The winners of the eighth annual Nikon Small World in Motion Photomicrography Competition have been announced! The competition is the video extension of the long-established Small World still photography competition. This year's first prize winners are Dr. Elizabeth Haynes and Jiaye "Henry" He, who recorded a zebrafish embryo developing its nervous system over 16 hours, seen above. Below is the second place winner, from Dr. Miguel A. Bandres and Anatoly Patsyk, showing a laser propagating inside a soap membrane.
