Actually they're not alien, they're human. damned.gif

Animators have created remarkable pictures that resemble an alien landscape from the latest science fiction blockbuster, but are in fact ultra-realistic representations of the inside of a human body.

Produced by studio XVIVO in Hartford, Connecticut in the U.S., the movies magnify areas of our insides by up to 10 million times.

The 3D images were produced as part of a project aimed to help students and scientists understand the human body in new and creative ways.

XVIVO compiled the collection for institutions including Harvard, Pfizer, and the United States Department of Defence and used replications of electron micrographs, medical illustrations and photographs to recreate snapshots of parts of the body at a molecular level.

Animators have included motion images of the inner ear, bone marrow and the protective structure inside the gastrointestinal tract amongst other areas.

Although the project used real data, the equipment used to produce the microscopic imagery produces no colour, so illustrators added their own shades, tints and tones.

Michael Astrachan, a partner in XVIVO said: 'Aesthetically inspirational art moves people. We can take information that is typically taught in a bland, uninspiring two dimensional textbook and bring it to life through a meaningful and inspirational journey.'
