How a Flu Invades Your Body: An Animated Look

It’s getting close to that time of the year, at least in the Northern Hemisphere — flu season. And so, with the help of NPR’s Robert Krulwich and medical animator David Bolinsky, we’re taking an animated look at what actually happens when viruses invade your body and trick a single cell into making a million more viruses, and how your immune system deals with the mess. It’s a wonderful demystification of phenomena shaping our everyday lives, and so we’re adding the clip to our collection of 125 Great Science Videos.
