Hey Yalls!

I figured a nice break from politics and natural disasters is in order.


hese incredible pictures show the awesome beauty of science. From more than 3,500 entries, judges at the Royal Photographic Society Images of Science Competition have named these as the best. Winners include the jaw-droppingly detailed picture of a pork tapeworm, an amazing glimpse at the experiment trying to unlock the secrets of the universe and a unique perspective of a glowstick. Most of the pictures are not usually visible to the human eye and can only be captured with specialist equipment. They show the natural world at its most complex, offering seldom seen detail of their subjects. The competition was open to both professional and amateur photographers who were tasked with taking a picture that told a story about science.


For your consideration Above Top Secretions;;;

a pork tapeworm (yum) won the Gold for best photo



a weird landscape of impala legs and metatarsal glands won bronze



This image offers an amazing glimpse at the Xenon1T Detector which is searching for dark matter. Also won a gold award



Al collage of almost 600 retinas resembling a vision test exhibiting various eye conditions. won a silver




A mega close up of a glow stick liquid Glowsticks traditionally contain a combination of liquids that when placed together, form a complex self-organised pattern. The mathematics behind this were first described by Alan Turing as an explanation for, among other things, stripes on animal skin. It was taken by Ella Main and has won a Gold Award




Linkarino

I am creeped out by parasites. But could not resist I had to see the tapeworm....I held my breath and clicked your thread.
It's actually not as bad as I thought.
I was expecting to see a tapeworm inside a skull.
