Our Tumblr followers are invited to a special after-hours event on Thursday, July 7 to view this and many other beautiful images created for scientific research in a new photo exhibition Picturing Science: Museum Scientists and Imaging Technologies. You’ll have the opportunity to visit cutting-edge research labs, meet Museum scientists, and more. (Beer and wine is on us). Sign up here for your chance to attend!
