The British Library's spring exhibition, Beautiful Science, will examine the intriguing subject of date visualisation through history. The exhibition will explore how scientists have represented information visually, linking classic examples of interesting and inspiring historical scientific diagrams with cutting-edge graphics by today's scientists. Visitors will be taken on a journey of scientific discovery from Darwin to the latest techniques employed by NASA and gain a strong appreciation of science as a visual pursuit and an understanding of the ways that visualisation has enabled improved understanding across a number of fields. Star objects include John Snow's cholera map of London, Charles Darwin's tree of life from On The Origin Of The Species and a hypnotic visualisation of ocean surface currents produced by the NASA.
