Many of my readers may remember that last year I wrote an article about a remastered picture of the Solvay Conference of 1927. This picture had been re-coloured and gave a whole new depth to the eminent scientists who we are standing on the shoulders of today. Well, I was browsing the internet this evening when I found a user of Deviant art called Mygrapefruit who has been rejuvenating many more famous pictures from the past. Their gallery is a masterpiece and is a definitely worth a view, but I thought I would share a few of my favourite science related ones.
Alexander Graham Bell (1847-1922) – Invented the first practical telephone
Operation Crossroads (Baker) – July 25th 1946 nuclear explosion detonated 90m underwater with the purpose of testing the effects of nuclear weapons on naval ships
Albert Einstein (1879-1955) – Famous for the Special and General Theories of Relativity and also a 1921 Nobel prize winner for discovering the photoelectric effect.
