Sciences & Crafts

Princeton University held it's first annual Art of Science Competition this year where they asked students "submit imagery produced in the course of research or incorporating tools and concepts from science." The pictures they received are actually pretty neat although the explanations of where they come from are really quite dreadful to read. So just keep looking at the pretty pictures. Here.

This here ditty is called "Driven" and it's a picture of the "evolving dynamical patterns formed during the spreading of a surface-active substance (surfactant) over a thin liquid film on a silicon wafer." Got that?

And over here we have some thing we like to call "Cygnus Nebula" are a bunch of stars and clouds and other and other paraphenelia of the stars.

And this ladies and gentlemen is the "Strange Crystal." Indeed. "Why strange?" you ask. Why simply because "crystals in nature do not possess 5-fold symmetry on any large scale, while this one can fill the entire plane very nicely with appropriately placed seeds." And now you know.

Nice blog. Your style is refreshing.

I came here tracking a search engine visitor for Ithaa, the underwater restaurant. Funny.
