Maggie Koerth-Baker over at Boing Boing dug up a great thread at Quora asking users to share their favorite iconic scientific photos. The page has grown into a beautiful collection of images ranging from Darwin's illustration of finch beak variations from the Galapagos Islands to the Hubble Deep Field (one of my all time favorite photos and seen above).


Do yourself a favor and click over and check out the collection.


Science is awesome.
