The best video I've seen in years

Six minutes in length and worth every millisecond, IMHO.  As you watch the cells divide, you realize that each one is programmed to a different final outcome, and even when they divide those two divisions likely have different fates.  And if one or two cells screw up at a given moment, the result is a spina bifida or whatever.  It's as fascinating as contemplating deep space or deep time.
