When we contemplate the scenes that mark and accompany our lives, we do so from a particular point of view and always subject to a small touch of subjectivity. What, in appearance, is an everyday trait or normalized by the human being, can become something really amazing if we dig a little deeper.
The science is defined as the set of knowledge obtained through observation and reasoning, systematically structured and which principles and laws are deduced capable predictive and experimentally testable.
Precisely, this systematic observation is also creative of art and immortalizes the most singular images of our day to day, without hardly realizing it. The look of science is much more exciting than what is believed, and has become a way to be able to observe the world, although in a different way than we know it.
The versatility in the scale of vision of science allows, on the one hand, that we know the inadvertent microscopic universe. In this, there is a whole new world for humans with invisible creatures that coexist with each of us and closer to what is believed. And for example, on the other hand, science also allows us to travel distances that very few have been able to and contemplate the gigantic and chilling outer space.
So, what images can science capture as opposed to the human being’s gaze? Worms of hell, imposing solar eclipses, flashes and fireworks in absolute detail… Nothing goes unnoticed by the analytical eye of knowledge.
The year 2017 closes its doors with a large list of important events and incredible images. Social, political, cultural and natural factors draw the mark and signature of this year.
From a scientific point of view, the year 2017 has brought very relevant events, such as space flights, really beautiful natural phenomena, others unfortunately with a more catastrophic nature, innovations in technology and health, and extraordinary knowledge about the most remote past of the species , including ours.
Then, we leave you the most striking planes of science and the natural world compiled briefly in the best scientific photographs, according to the journal Nature. Do not miss a detail!
Through ‘electrospinning‘, a technique in which an electric charge extracts fibers from a liquid, we can contemplate in detail this exhibition of how fireworks are.
More than 400 “coral trees” grow in this nursery off the coast of Tavernier, Florida. The objective of this space focuses on feeding corals, increasingly threatened by the warming of the waters and the acidification of the oceans.
Heavy rains and runoff from nearby forests flow into this underwater cavern located on the Caribbean coast of Mexico. The rays of sunlight that strike its waters, reveal its mysterious radiance.
In October, researchers in Switzerland unveiled this small cantilevered scale designed to determine the weight of a human cell and detect the smallest fluctuations in mass.
The American company SpaceX has advanced with its system of reusable rockets. At this stage of the rocket (Falcon 9) the ship lands on a ship in the Pacific Ocean after putting satellites into orbit, a procedure that has now become routine for the company.
The spectacular solar eclipse of the month of August was made with the headlines and covers of all the newspapers of the world delighting scientists and the public from all over the world with these impressive captures. This image of the Moon that transits before the Sun was taken by the spaceship of the Solar Observatory Dynamics of NASA in the extreme ultraviolet spectrum.
This ultraviolet light image of the American photographer Craig Burrows reveals the hidden nuances of an anemone flower or also known as wind flower.
It is the Saccorhytus coronarius, a millimeter-scale fossil of at least 529 million years old. The species could be the oldest known member of the group of deuterostomes, the group of animals that includes vertebrates.
Solar eclipse process in the USA
Before we looked at the image in detail of the natural phenomenon that eclipsed the United States for a few minutes. Now in this picture the progression is observed the event from Perryville, Missouri.
Octopus on sea turtle
This curious picture was captured by photographer Michael Hardie in the waters of Hawaii. The image was a finalist in the annual Smithsonian photo contest.
This fascinating species of amphibian was discovered in the Amazon jungle of Ecuador. These frogs have the ventral fold completely transparent, which means that the organs are fully visible. Thanks to this, the following image shows us the eggs inside this Hyalinobatrachium colymbiphyllumesta or pregnant glass frog.
A scanning electron microscope shows the arrow-shaped relief of this calcite crystal. This is governed by a protein that binds to the surface of the crystal and shapes it as it grows.
Known as Taenia solium or Solitaria. His chilling face is portrayed at 200 magnifications. These large worms live alone inside the intestine of a person and length can reach several meters. This image was also a finalist in the Nikon Small World photography contest.
Volunteers in Beijing
In May 2017, several volunteers were isolated at the Lunar Palace 1 research facility in Chin, Beijing, designed to test life support systems for a base on the Moon.
