The 2009 Art of Science competition highlights scientific images created during the course of research projects. Chemical engineering Assistant Professor Celeste Nelson's image, baby squid, took the top prize in the competition. Judges for the competition were President Shirley M. Tilghman, Dean of the Faculty David Dobkin, photographer Emmet Gowin and poet Paul Muldoon. While the distinguished panel of judges has named its top three prize winners, members of the publi
A panel of distinguished judges has selected the best pieces of art to come out of the University's research labs. Now it's everyone else's turn. Winners of the 2009 Art of Science competition were announced at a gallery opening May 8 and an online voting site is letting others chose their favorites.
For several decades, archaeologists in Greece have been painstakingly attempting to reconstruct wall paintings that hold valuable clues to the ancient culture of Thera, an island civilization that was buried under volcanic ash more than 3,500 years ago. This Herculean task -- more than a century of further work at the current rate -- soon may get much easier, thanks to an automated system developed by a team of Princeton University computer scientists working in collaboration with archaeologists
Szymon Rusinkiewicz, David Dobkin, Tim Weyrich, and Benedict Brown explain "virtual archaeologist" software they invented to help streamline the painstaking process of reconstructed ancient wall paintings.
Five engineering faculty members were among ten Princeton University scientists who teamed up with local sculptors, architects and landscape architects to create the phenomenon known as Quark Park.
