Slide show - More Art of Science images

Posted on April 16, 2013


Princeton’s Art of Science exhibition, a showcase of 44 images representing science as an art form, will be on display at the Liberty Science Center in Jersey City, N.J, through Sept. 15. Five photos — and the stories behind them — are featured in the April 24 issue of PAW. Browse additional images in the slide show below.

This stunning computer model captures the strongly irregular, or chaotic, behavior of the Earth’s magnetic field as the north and south poles change places. The poles have flipflopped hundreds of times over the past 160 million years as a result of shifting movement in the molten metal that surrounds the center of the Earth. The last time this happened was 780,000 years ago.

I loved the show and would like to know when the artwork of the show will be on line. I would love to buy prints/posters of several images.
