Miracle of life

Development of the human embryo and fetus is just awe-inspiring. I’ve had the experience of being completely mesmerized with a gray smudge with somewhat recognizable appendages that was my in-utero son in a grainy ultrasound photo. And that was just a smudge (well, a handsome one, objectively speaking). If you’d like to see pictures of those amazing first arm buds and legs, you might want to check out the Nova special “Life’s Greatest Miracle”. You can conveniently view short segments on the web.
