Your “Fantastic Voyage!” is continuing. You are still a video
reporter piloting a mini-sub that has been put through a miniaturization process
making you and the sub only 8 microns long. This time, you have been swallowed

crossing the glomerular membrane into Bowman’s capsule. Describe the structures
you see, and narrate what happens as you travel through the urinary tract, until
you leave the body via the urethra.

explaining the integration of the body systems in maintaining homeostasis. You
