Who does not love visual information? We certainly love it at Mind the Graph, especially when it refers to breathtaking science pictures like the ones from the 15th Annual Vizzies Challenge.
“A team of experts at NSF and Popular Science pared hundreds of submissions down to 50 finalists; from those 50, a panel of outside experts picked five Expert’s Choice winners. Popular Science readers chose five People’s Choice winners.” National Science Foundation
