Scientific discoveries across disparate disciplines frequently arise from new tools to "see" a phenomenon, whether using different wavelengths or resolutions. Extraordinarily beautiful images are used to elucidate processes occurring on atomic to astronomical scales.
This event showcased some of Cornell's successes in producing scientifically meaningful, but also visually striking, images of natural processes on scales from nanometers to light years. Part of Cornell's Sesquicentennial celebration, April 24-27, 2015.
