- A Google maps for the human body – “A group of scientists has taken the first important steps towards creating the Human Cell Atlas—a complete inventory of our staggeringly diverse cells.”

Yeah, ok.. That is definitely weird. Would suggest they get Col. Carter to try to work out how to undo the inter-dimensional viewing effect from the ancient device brought back from that unnamed desert planet in “Sight Unseen” (just finished watching Stargate SG-1, which had something like this), but.. you know, science fiction… Well, that and it was bugs, not zombies everyone that got touched by someone already effected where seeing.
Seriously though.. This is definitely very, very, strange.
