The Art of Science

Scientific and technical work has been producing aesthetically pleasing images for 100s of years. The New York Times has noticed some recent cases in a brief note: "A Princeton University art contest, soliciting “images produced during the course of scientific research that have aesthetic merit,” mustered some pretty cool stuff: an oblique photograph of an architectural structure built of chocolate, a highly intimate look at cells of the fruit fly ovary, and so forth."
