Art and Science, an LMAC Special with StemSocial!

Hi all!

After a long vacation, I came back to realize there was only 20 hours remaining for the LMAC/STEMsocial collaboration competition >.<

I was super into the idea and, well, the results you can see below.

I want to add that since I was not fully caught up on the Copyright rules for the competition, I used some images under Creative Commons which may not pass the regulations, so I've made a second, less fun version (first image), and for your own enjoyment the original concept is also in this post (second image).

It's so disappointing the imagine of Fritz Zwicky is CC4.0! This is such a fun picture of him, the man who first described dark matter! Nevertheless, I think both images are kinda cool. Carl Sagan is a pretty good alternative :D

Take a look!

Quick context

  • The quote at the top is from Neil deGrasse Tyson. It's really thought provoking, so it fits really well here!

  • If you look carefully, Zwicky (picture 2) has a young Zwicky inside his head, staring into space!

  • The galaxy pouting out of the bottle is being bent by the gravity of big Zwicky, kind of like the gravitational lensing effect scientists can observe around Dark Matter, according to @lemouth.

  • The equations, well, I don't understand them. But I know the Schwarzschild radius is in there, alongside the formula to show the angle of deflection in gravitational lensing. And, something about density or amount of dark matter in the Universe (about 25%)

  • Carl Sagan in the official entry is wearing the golden record as a pin badge! Which is now somewhere outside our solar system on Voyager 2

I would have expected a dark cat instead of a white one here ... This being said, your work resulted in a nice collage, with actually a lot of science in it ^^

Thank you @lemouth ! Yeah a dark cat would def be a better fit, but it wouldn't be as funny as mobbs' cat Smash 🤣

Perhaps Mobbs should have adopted a dark cat purposely for the contest :)

Thank you for your dark matter introduction too! That helps a lot :DDD

Your collages are clever and exuberant. The fun comes through, as does your natural wit. Good enough to remind me that I am just an enthusiastic amateur :).

I'm glad you are highlighted in this week's curation announcement. Well-deserved recognition.

Thank you @agmoore . That's so sweet of you!! It was a fun way for me to learn about dark matter.
I really like your collages too. Such a smart way to connect the universe and the alphabet!

@porkjelly, one of your Hive friends wishes you a Happy Valentine's day and asked us to give you a new badge!
