Scientific research produces not only insights into the world we live in, but also results that are beautiful to the eye. About 70 such works, prepared by research students at the Weizmann Institute of Science, as part of the research in which they participate in the institute's laboratories, were presented in the exhibition "The Beauty of Science" in the entrance hall of the Feinberg Seminary at the Weizmann Institute.

The images, obtained as part of research in the life sciences, chemistry, physics, mathematics and computer science, represent results with aesthetic characteristics, regardless of their scientific value. In fact, some of them were obtained in experiments gone wrong. The results invite the viewers to look at the world from a new, unusual point of view, and discover how scientific research is related, in its deep layers, to beauty and aesthetics. The exhibition "Beauty in Science" was organized by Dr. Naama Geva-Zatorski, with the assistance of the members of the student council at the institute.
