Caption

Three-dimensional visualisation reconstructed from scanned human data of the vertebral column. The combination of strength, flexibility and armor is accomplished by an S-shaped stack of irregular bones, interspersed with springy disks of tough cartilage. The disks act like ball bearings, absorbing forces of up to several hundred pounds per square inch during strenuous exercise. The S-shape adds resilience and maintains a balanced center of gravity. Nerves radiate from the spinal column to innervate specific locations.
