Earth?...or a 3D reconstructed uCT image?

Dr. Peter Yang and his research team had their 3D reconstructed uCT image selected as a cover in the journal of Tissue Engineering, Part A, September issue!

This 3D reconstructed uCT image shows their injectable biodegradable hydrogel aided robust bone formation in a circular critical size cranial defect in rodents. Its coincidental similarity to the Space view of Earth is a value-add to this already amazingly beautiful image!
