Veronique Greenwood (Wired) - How the body’s trillions of clocks keep time

A bit technical, but so cool. Almost all your cells have clock mechanism in it. No Swiss radars of course. But proteins that regulate the behavior of the cell over the day.

That wakes up the cell. And makes you feel hungry. Or open your eyes.
