Beauty in Science
Is science beautiful?
If we think of “beauty” as something pleasing to our senses and our spirit, science is beautiful. Many aspects of science are beautiful!
The joy of discovery is beautiful, as are some outputs of science such as images and waveforms. At its heart, science is a human endeavor, and the friendships made in the pursuit of science, the fun of traveling to conferences, presenting our work, and the immersion in science are all sources of beauty.
There is beauty in curiosity, wonder, and order, and in the pursuit of science itself.
