Une sélection d'illustrations scientifiques, de l'antiquité à nos jours ~ Sweet Random Science. J'imagine mesquinement qu'aujourd'hui, la plupart des scientifiques n'ont ni le temps ni le talent pour produire leurs propres illustrations, et que le métier d'illustrateur scientifique est bien souvent découplé de celui du chercheur.

Mais cela n'a pas toujours été le cas ; bien avant l'avènement de la photographie, des techniques d'imagerie modernes et du dessin numérique, les scientifiques étaient à la fois des observateurs minutieux et des artistes à la technique irréprochable. A Multiverse of Exploration: The Future of Science 2021. Cartographies des connaissances scientifiques. Comment cartographier les sciences?

Cartographies des connaissances scientifiques

De la "Métaphysique" d'Aristote à la classification de Dewey, le classement des savoirs est un enjeu philosophique majeur. Raphaël Velt retrace les cartes historiques et s'intéresse à leurs utilisations. Article publié sur OWNISciences sous le titre, Les connaissances scientifiques à la carte Les techniques cartographiques peuvent s’appliquer à toutes les disciplines scientifiques, notamment en biologie où elles servent entre autres à décrire les réseaux trophiques (plus connus sous le nom réducteur de « chaînes alimentaires ») ainsi que les réseaux complexes d’interactions entre molécules.

Je m’intéresserai aujourd’hui à leur application à l’épistémologie, c’est à dire l’étude de ce que sont les connaissances humaines. Les techniques cartographiques peuvent en effet décrire l’état des connaissances scientifiques ainsi que la dynamique de la recherche.

The Best Scientific Visualizations of 2013 - Wired Science. The Mathematics of Familiar StrangersWe live in an image-dominated age, and popular science abounds with visuals: eye-popping photographs, gorgeous graphics and slick information design.

The Best Scientific Visualizations of 2013 - Wired Science

Amidst all this eye candy, not much attention is paid to figures accompanying articles in scientific journals and white papers.Even if they're utilitarian and low-resolution, though — or perhaps because of that — these figures are a sort of scientific folk art. They convey complex findings or principles with simplicity and grace, and sometimes even beauty.On the following pages are Wired Science's favorite research graphics of 2013.

They're in no particular order, except that the first are particular favorites. How Much Is a Forest Worth? Sorting algorithms visualization. 12 Steps To A Cosmic Orgasm – Follow The Astronauts And Experience The Overview Effect. Once a photograph of the Earth, taken from the outside, is available, a new idea as powerful as any in history will be let loose.— attributed to Sir Fred Hoyle, 1948.Tweet After Astronaut Edgar Mitchell had spent a whopping 9 hours and 17 minutes on the moon he was suddenly overcome with a sense of timelessness, bliss and absolute interconnectedness.

For a moment suspended in infinity his privatized perspective dissolved into a cosmic whole, a zero point – Everything became aware it was Everything. This is what astronauts coined ‘The Overview Effect’. NASA Goddard Scientific Visualization Studio. Scientific Data Visualization. Scientific data is an essential component of research.

Scientific Data Visualization

It is the "gold" of every researcher, however, it won't shine itself. In order to gain insight into the data, people have to analyze it using different techniques including visualization, which provides a very intuitive and effective way to understand data no matter the data is simple or complex. Nowaday, data obtained from measurement or simulation become increasingly large and complex.

It becomes harder to understand the data and make sense of it. Visualization becomes essential and the demand for visualization is growing. Stunning interactive map traces the course of the wind. Wind Map. An invisible, ancient source of energy surrounds us—energy that powered the first explorations of the world, and that may be a key to the future.

International Science & Engineering Visualization Challenge. The Visible Universe, Then and Now. Before the telescope was invented in 1608, our picture of the universe consisted of six planets, our moon, the sun and any stars we could see in the Milky Way galaxy.

But as our light-gathering capabilities have grown, so too have the boundaries of the visible universe. Our interactive map shows how the known universe has grown from 1950 to 2011. C'est beau une goutte d'eau qui gèle (en anglais) What topics science lovers link to the most. Hilary Mason, chief scientist at bitly, examined links to 600 science pages and the pages that those people visited next: The results revealed which subjects were strongly and weakly associated.

What topics science lovers link to the most

Chemistry was linked to almost no other science. Biology was linked to almost all of them. Health was tied more to business than to food. But why did fashion connect strongly to physics? Canvi & Temps: An Exploration of Science Over Time. Bestiario, the group behind 6pli and a number of other network projects, released their most recent project - Canvi & Temps - that explores the complexity of science since the early 1920s.

Scientists have created the world's first video animation of the female orgasm, using a series of brain scan images. To capture the brain activity, researchers monitored a woman's brain as she lay in a functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) scanner and stimulated herself. Psychologists at Rutgers University in New Jersey, where the study was conducted, hope the research will help them to understand the reasons why some men and women cannot reach sexual climax.

Researcher, Professor Barry Komisaruk, who presented the findings at the Society for Neuroscience annual meeting in Washington DC on Monday, told the Guardian: "The general aim of this research is to understand how the orgasm builds up from genital stimulation and what parts of the brain become recruited and finally build up into an orgasm.
