Future - Why science needs imagination and beauty Albert Einstein famously said: “Imagination is more important than knowledge.” They’re both important, says physicist and Nobel Prize recipient Frank Wilczek, but knowledge without imagination is barren. Take his subject of theoretical physics. As Wilczek says a lot of what you do is to try to understand Mother Nature’s mind and her sense of beauty to see how the laws of physics could be more beautiful.

As you read through the project, you will notice that we don’t expect you to treat the subject matter particularly seriously but we do expect you – as always – to treat your writing seriously.
