Zoom Into the Human Bloodstream poster


This illustration shows the circulatory system across 10 orders of magnitude. Using the conventions of visual perspective the image travels in one continuous “landscape” from the human scale at the top to the atomic scale in the foreground. Placing objects from the circulatory system in one frame clarifies the connections between components, highlighting the system’s reliance on structures at very different scales. This illustration won the 2008 Science and Engineering Visualization Challenge from NSF and Science magazine! This illustration is available as a poster with annotated text, a banner, a poster without annotations or a graphic file, and also appears on the "Everything is Made of Atoms" Poster with other parallel zooms into a butterfly wing and a computer chip.
