Neutrophil chase

I love old science videos, there is something about the simplicity and directness of them that makes them more interesting than the ‘entertaining’ bits of science you get on Animal Planet. Here is a video of a neutrophil (part of our immune system) chasing a bacterium. Look at him go! It makes me wonder when we will be able to completely model something as simple but complex as a bacteria.
