Sometimes, we get so wrapped up in the science and the data we forget that what we are looking at is truly beautiful. Sometimes, I think we need to step back and just look, turn off the scientific mind just for a minute, and absorb the beauty that these rocks can provide.
Here, I have included some of the favourite images from students. Enjoy their raw beauty before reading the caption. Then after you have read the caption, appreciate the science behind these magnificent images. I have purposely made the captions difficult to read in hopes that you will appreciate the beauty of the image before analysing it.

I hope you enjoyed this time out of your day to appreciate how beautiful our science can be.
