Much still to be learned about this amazing piece of nature. This article explains how scientists have recently figured out how to measure the strength of things called ‘meiotic spindles’, which somehow, cause chromosomes to separate and be placed at certain spots in the cell during division. Fascinating stuff and astounding research IMO. Link from Science Daily.
