Gravity Map of Earth's Surface
This tortured globe – created using data from the Goce gravity-mapping satellite – reveals what the Earth would look like if its shape were altered to make gravity the same everywhere on its surface. Areas of strongest gravity are in yellow and weakest in blue.
Magnets and Watercolours
Fabian Oefner is a Swiss photographer and artist, who combines art and science. He emphasizes ordinary elements of the natural world, by injecting, in this case literally, colors and textures. In his project Millefiori, Oefner combines ferrofluid, a magnetic material, and watercolors.
