Motta: Reproduction

The process of reproduction is one of the great wonders of human life. These unique scanning electron microscope pictures by Italy's Professor Pietro Motta show in exquisite detail some of the steps involved: the production of sperm in the testis; the maturing of the female egg; the journey of the sperm towards the uterus; the moment of fertilisation; the development of the embryo. Journalist Dr Rob Stepney describes what happens.
