Chemistry Graduate Students’ Cool Science Images Garner Recognition

From the frumpish mug of an oyster toadfish to delicate crystalline “flowers” of cobalt pyrite, 12 winners of the 2014 University of Wisconsin-Madison Cool Science Image contest were announced on March 25.

Ten still images and two videos were recognized for their portrayals of science and for the stories the pictures embody. Two chemistry graduate students’ submissions were winning images:
