Watch: Mouse Embryo Development — Axe: “Appreciate It in Silence” 

Protein scientist Douglas Axe, author of Undeniable: How Biology Confirms Our Intuition That Life Is Designed, tweets: “Incredible videos showing cellular movements during development of mouse embryo. This will go viral when they put it to music, but for now appreciate it in silence!”

It is indeed eerie and beautiful. From Cell Press: “This series of videos from McDole et al. shows the development of a mouse embryo, captured using adaptive light-sheet microscopy, and highlights cell division (part A), cell movements (part B) and tissue dynamics (parts C, D) during embryogenesis.”
