Science Fun of the Week

(October 6th, 2017) Get ready for your weekly dose of science fun. Today: An adipose unicorn.

From the Ihearthisto website: "This image shows fat or adipose tissue. It is a type of connective tissue found in varying quantities all over the body. The tissue is an energy store, has a protective cushioning action and acts as a layer of insulation. The adipocytes contain lipid and numerous small blood vessels can be seen traveling between cells (eyes). Image is by @annesolveigstorlien, submitted via Instagram."
