Alum’s Photo to Live ‘Forever’ on Stamp

The otherworldly microscope photograph by Daniel Castranova M.S. ’03 of a juvenile zebrafish illuminates its subject like an artwork and a scientific study at once. It’s now getting global exposure as one of 20 images featured in the U.S. Postal Service’s new Life Magnified Forever Stamp series, which reveals the beauty of nature in miniature. It wasn’t just for show; the photo by the aquatic research specialist at the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development revealed a network of lymphatic vessels (seen in orange) that previously weren’t known to exist in the heads of fish.
