HeLa cells in motion

I was fortunate enough to see some HeLa cells dividing in the laboratory of the College of Life Sciences, Dundee.  The footage here (as well as the subsequent videos below)is taken from Youtube, but you can see what an amazing process this is.  And that the cells themselves, despite their negative resonances, are actually rather beautiful under the microscope.

Is it unsettling that something so beautiful can cause so much harm?
