His high speed video shows the virus moving across a “virological synapse” between two immune cells - a fascinating and slightly disturbing piece of camerawork. It's available on the Web site of the South African edition of Popular Mechanics: visit

    That was pretty amazing in the sense that it was incredible to actually observe the movement of the HIV. But it also was a little disturbing. Now I feel like giving pep talks to my body and being like, "DON'T TALK TO STRANGERS! BE SAFE! I KNOW YOU CAN DO IT!"

    Of course that doesnt mean I feel that I'm in danger from HIV. I'm talking about any general virus or illness.
