The Incredible Private Islands Of The Rich And Famous

Some super rich people spend their money on private jets; others build lavish homes around the globe. But perhaps the ultimate show of wealth is the private island. Born rich has gathered a few islands owned by the wealthy; we've compiled a list of our own. They belong to businessmen, moguls and celebrities, and some are lived on year round, while others are rented out to guests. Incredibly, many of them - like the British Virgin Island owned by Richard Branson - were snapped up decades ago at relative steals.

Richard Branson bought Necker Island in the British Virgin Islands for $200,000 in the 1970s. It now rents for over $50,000 per night.

Microscopic Images From Inside The Human Body

Written by: soniaydong
Get up close and personal with your innards with these 15 amazing 3D-body shots. Almost all of the following images were captured using a scanning electron microscope (SEM), a type of electron microscope that uses a beam of high-energy electrons to scan surfaces of images. The electron beam of the SEM interacts with atoms near or at the surface of the sample to be viewed, resulting in a very high-resolution, 3D-image. Magnification levels range from x 25 (about the same as a hand lens) to about x 250,000. Incredible details of 1 to 5 nm in size can be detected.

Max Knoll was the first person to create an SEM image of silicone steel in 1935; over the next 30 years, a number of scientists worked to further develop the instrument, and in 1965 the first SEM was delivered to DuPont by the Cambridge Instrument Company as the "Stereoscan." Here you'll experience the power of SEM in a journey of self-discovery that starts in your head, travels down through the chest and ends in the bowels of the abdomen. Along the way, you'll see what's normal, what happens when cells are twisted by cancer and what it looks like when an egg meets sperm for the first time. You'll never see yourself the same way again.

Spear Piercing Yasser Lopez's Head

MIAMI (CBS4) - For the first time, South Florida is seeing some stunning images of how a 16-year-old boy was injured when a spear from a spear gun entered his head in a freak accident. Doctors from the University of Miami/Jackson Memorial Hospital and the Army Trauma Training Center revealed that it was a miracle that the spear missed all the main blood vessels in Yasser Lopez's brain.
