So recently I been seeing more and more of these lists of “the most iconic”, “the greatest” or “the most powerful” photographs ever taken. In particular, “40 of the Most Powerful Photographs Ever Taken” list inspired me to do something similar with science pictures, only with less pictures and perhaps something a little bit less dramatic. What I wanted to do is to select the most iconic pictures of science. And by iconic I mean pictures, which have stayed in our minds and culture for decades. Naturally, some pictures have a much lower quality than others, but I still felt like I should add them due to their symbolic significance. Also some of the pictures were added for their artistic appeal (like the cool fiber optics picture). So thanks for checking this out and feel free to write a comment below if I missed some important picture.
