  • Published on Nov 6, 2014
  • What does the Ebola virus actually do in your body? Why is it so dangerous and why does it kill so many people? We take a look at the apocalyptic war that rages in the body after an infection by the Ebola virus and the soldiers fighting.
    Videos, explaining things. Like evolution, time, space, global energy or our existence in this strange universe.
    We are a team of designers, journalists and musicians who want to make science look beautiful. Because it is beautiful.

    Ebola is not so much of a problem because of it's transmission method. To be really dangerous it would need to mutate to become airborne. If it does that start screaming in sheer panic.

    The flu kills more people each year, but only the weakest. Ebola doesn't discriminate between young and strong or old and weak.

    I think like some kind of medical scientist (If it's even a thing).
    I think we can insert some fake dendritic cell and then the natural killer cell will kill it .
    Then (maybe) f% €/ up Ebola.
    Please correct me I think I am wrong!
