The finalists for the best science images 2017
The Wellcome Image Awards is a celebration of science, medicine and life. 2017 marks their 20th year of operation. Each year, the Wellcome Image Awards aims to recognize the creators of scientific images that are both informative and visually appealing. These images are collected over the course of one year and judged by experts with medical and science backgrounds.
This year's awards were presented March 15, 2017 and needless to say, they are captivating. The winner of the top image was created by a man named Spooky Pooka, based on the transformative nature of Crohn's disease. He was inspired to create his image based on his background in CGI (computer generated imagery) effects.
Other selected images include the inner workings of animal eyes, spinal cords and brain activity.
Be sure to go through these ten specifically selected images. They're like nothing you've ever seen before.
And... That's It!
