best science photographs


From National Geographic News, the best Science Photographs of 2005, make for some great images.
Shown is the winner from the ‘concepts’ category by John Brackenbury, called ‘Origins of Life’.

Cambridge University lecturer John Brackenbury combined this series of high-speed photographs to illustrate the concept of panspermia.

Panspermia is the theory that seeds of life exist throughout the universe and that life on Earth arose when those seeds landed on our planet eons ago. The image shows eggs shattering as they hit water, releasing smaller eggs within.
