astro picture for the day

The arrow is pointing to the most massive star ever found(so far!). Not much of a picture but why not?
- Science/Tech news,
Nanoshuttles propelled by motor proteins sequentially assemble molecular cargo in a microfluidic device
“We need to continue to optimise the system and learn more about how we can design the individual components of this nanoshuttle system to make these applications possible in the future,”
This further link shows some more schematic pictures of interest and movies of it working! This is small time compared to where all this will lead, but the pictures are exciting anyways! Nanoshuttles: Harnessing Biological Motor Proteins to Build Nanoscale Transport Systems
