Answer after the break.
A little alien? I’ll give you a hint, it is lab related. How about a ghost in the machine like the X-files title? Last week I did some live-imaging experiments and couldn’t help but laugh everytime I saw this pattern. What you are looking at above is a fluorescent protein filling up the nucleus from a human embryonic kidney cell. I see a lot of these “faces” and like them, they keep me company in the basement.
