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 images from 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.
The gallery is located diagonally opposite Melbourne Central Railway Station and can be reached by trams traveling on Swanston and La Trobe Streets, including the City Circle Tram.
Limited street parking is available.
