These are the immortal cells of Henrietta Lacks, a woman who died in the 1900s from cancer but whose cells have lead to the most significant advancements science has ever seen. They are known as HeLa cells. The light blue circles are the cells themselves and the darker blue within them is the nucleus. The many small blue dots just beneath the pointer are the chromosomes, coils of DNA.
