What is science? The New Scientist Eureka Prize for Science Photography expands our view with an exhibition of 24 works from the 2007 prize.
This collection of diverse photographs of polymers in a cochlear ear, to cells dividing, jade icebergs in Antarctica to a levitated drop of blood, remind us that science includes the natural, physical, applied sciences, environmental issues, biodiversity, flora and fauna, medicine, astronomy, information technology, engineering and health science.
Curated by the Australian Museum and New Scientist magazine, the prize is awarded for the photograph that most effectively communicates an aspect of science. Equal first place was awarded to Rodney Vella for Crystal Orb and Steven Morton for Levitated Drop of Blood.
