Surely they should have labelled 'Highest Mountain' as 'Tallest Mountain'? Its not really that high, in fact it sits quite low. Sorry for the pedantry - great post!

Awesome. Here's a companion piece that runs along the same lines: The Art of Science 2006 Online Gallery.

Also: WOW!, that Air Traffic piece is just beautiful.

I love the way that one of them uses chalk on a blackboard rather than computer aided or high resolution or any other form of technogically mediated imagery. There's something really cool about old-school coloured chalk.

The Nikon Small World Microphotography competition recently declared winners also. Great stuff.

I saw the Air Traffic piece a while back; it got me fiddilng with Processing, which has proved an entertaining (if not quite enterprise ready) way to while away some time.

Those glass objects are beautiful! I wonder if it would be possible to make them in real life, or if they'd be too fragile.
