Re: I claim this cell in the name of Ebola


I liked my T4 phage so much, I decided to show it off in this design. The "micronaut" of my other design has landed, and is "placing" a flag-like thing. That thing is Ebola. Uh Oh...

Very Clever. I think it would be better still if the surface was bumpy like a bilipid membrane or had a protein channel, or had a carbohydrate receptor hanging off of the surface.

I wish the 'moon' look more like a cell maybe add some transmembrane proteins or spheres for the phospholipid layer

I originally had tentacles and stuff imitating transmembrane proteins and channels, but it just looked too busy. So I went with a relatively depauperate cell membrane...

I could have done a lot of things, but I wanted to sell the landing concept more than the surface of whatever its landing on. Maybe when this design gets consigned to woot oblivion, I'll do what folks suggest...
