Atoms and particles
Communications and IT
Elements and compounds
Energy - non-renewable
Energy - renewable
Light and radiation
Schools and teaching

Our gallery of chemical reactions as you’ve never seen them before. Pin-sharp macro detail, speeded up to reveal the dynamic processes at work. This level of detail allows the intricate nature of the reactions to be seen, as we follow metals growing like snowflakes, colourful precipitation, crystals forming from solution, acid attacks and the almost lifelike growth of crystal gardens.
In this set we highlight the educational side of our collection. We look at sciences at every level of detail: the intricate interplay of the atoms and molecules that form the fabric of the world, the lives of the plants and animals that thrive on our living planet, and the grand and ordered dance of the Solar System around us.
These mathematical animations show how complicated and beautiful patterns can arise from relatively simple equations. Using modern modelling techniques, Christian Koch's work shows how the behaviour of many individual particles and their connections can lead to large-scale effects that are visible in the world around us, from magnetic fields to earthquakes to vast star clusters.
