Emily Coren is an accomplished illustrator and scientist, and she’s figured out how to bring those two skills together to make science easier to understand: science illustrations.
On her blog, Emily regularly illustrates complex scientific topics, creating beautiful images which are half-art/half-educational resource. She illustrates the landscapes out her window on plane flights, jellyfish in the aquarium, and sexy ferns.
Emily completed a series last year on how adaptive optics works. This is the technology that increases the resolution of both telescopes and microscopes, and she gave us permission to reprint the series here on Universe Today.
