A micro-submarine travels through a human artery. The submarine was made by a micro technology firm in Duisburg, Germany, using a technique by which three-dimensional objects can be created directly from a computer program, by means of laser beams. Equipped with appropriate instruments, such submarines will in future be able to detect defects in internal organs.

The sight in Michelle Pevarnik's right eye is saved by a tissue transplant from her sister Brenda. Dr Stephen Foster, a professor at Harvard Medical School, harvested stem cells - factories that produce various types of cells - from the surface of Brenda's eye under local anesthetic. Normally, the body replaces these cells regularly, but in Michelle's case they were damaged and had to be replaced.

March-July. A family fleeing Kosovo is reunited at the Albanian border after the mother and child had crossed alone. From March through May, hundreds of thousands of ethnic Albanians fled Serbian aggression in Kosovo. After a lengthy hold-off in the face of NATO bombardment, Serbian president Milosevic finally accepted a peace plan for Kosovo on June 3. On June 12, NATO forces made their way into Kosovo from Albania and Macedonia.

This face robot from the Science University of Tokyo has electric actuators beneath its silicon skin that change facial expressions much as human muscles do. Robotics institutes around the world come up with inventions that have both practical application and popular appeal.

Blace 1999
Kosovo Albanians trapped in a no man's land at the border between Kosovo and Macedonia. As tens of thousands of ethnic Albanians fled their homes, Macedonian authorities closed the borders for fear of too great an influx. The Kosovars were caught between Serb paramilitary units on one side, and Macedonian forces on the other. International media were given severely restricted access, so it was difficult for the refugees to communicate their plight.
