How the flu virus invades your body

This is an absolutely fascinating NPR video that shows how a virus invades your body. According to the NPR story, scientific animation outfit XVIVO produced the video:

David Bolinsky and his team at XVIVO designed this animation for a research company called Zirus (and we thank Zirus for letting us play with their pictures).
