Another year, another excellent collection of photographs about the Science behind the simple things in Nature: Visions of Science Photographic Award. From the site: ‘So, what is a Vision of Science? To the judges of the Awards, a Vision of Science is an attention-grabbing image that gives new insight into the world of science and the workings of nature. It may show something never seen before, it may explain a scientific phenomenon, it may illustrate scientific data or it may simply be an image that shows the beauty of science.’
If you like minerals (and molecules…) then you should not miss this extraordinary virtual museum.
There are not enough words to describe the beauty of this collection of photographs. So, the best to do is to take a look at them. My advice is to start with the 2004 winners and then go to the winners of the previous years.
