Sketches of Science

In Cooperation with the Nobel Prize Museum

The series “Sketches of Science” by science photo­grapher Volker Steger is dedicated not only to the Laureates but also to their discoveries: the Laureates were asked to put down their “inventions” on paper with crayons. The exhibition is a cooperative project of the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings and the Nobel Prize Museum in Stockholm.

Examples for Sketches

Martin Chalfie explains GFP: From jellyfish to test tube to petri dish to the C. elegans worm.

Sir Harold Kroto explains not only the structure but also frequently used applications of the C60 molecule he discovered, called the bucky ball.
