Science is Beauty

Who says there is no science in the beautiful? 

If you see beauty in this photograph, it is because of the biology of the flower, the chemistry of how nutrients are used to construct the petals, and the physics of light that took the image of the flower and multiplied it by refraction through the precipitation. The image is taken by a digital camera, and shared via the internet and your computers. 

It takes a lot of science to make us see beauty. Just because we cannot explain everything we feel, does not mean that science is not present. We simply have not found the science in them yet!
