Science doesn’t always have to be visualized as the crunching of numbers and data, or a lab full of beakers and white coats. In fact, science is actually quite beautiful (as anyone who’s ever studied science says, “duh!”).
Thanks to Fabian Oefner and TED, we have these stunning images of science in action. Check them out:
A combustion of alcohol.
Sound coming from the surface of speakers.
Ferrofluid is a magnetic fluid that looks like this when combined with a magnetic surface and watercolor paint.
A beautiful mixture of liquid and spray paint hanging in mid-air.
Oil marbles sitting in a mixture of water and methylated spirits.
A soap bubble caught on camera at the moment its surface breaks.
Centrifugal force as demonstrated using paint, a metal rod, and a power drill.
This is just one example of how science often blurs the line between dullness and creativity. You can view other galleries that use art to express science or ecology, such as this photo contest created by the EPA.
