"Inquiry: The Art of Scientific Discovery" brings College of Sciences together with UNLV Galleries for an exhibit of images and objects related to UNLV research.
There is tremendous beauty in the natural world, from witnessing the birth of the most distant galaxies, to seeing the smallest details of life on Earth, to examining the striking complexity generated by simple mathematical expressions. Often this beauty is overlooked because the technical nature of science requires that the communication of its results be done in the form of rigorous mathematical formulae, graphs that convey the results of complex data analysis, and language that has specific and narrow meaning. Yet, it is mankind’s observations of the natural world that inspire artists in their work, poets in their words, architects and musicians in their crafts, and scientists in their efforts to understand humanity’s place in the universe.
