What am I looking at? A Galactic Splatter


 What am I looking at? A Galactic Splatter

The images created during the daily scientific and medical endeavours at the Champalimaud Foundation can be as beautiful and compelling as any work of art. To the untrained eye, these images might also appear baffling, but, if you know what you’re looking at, they may just reveal information that can spark discoveries, contribute to the improvement of patient quality of life and maybe even alter our understanding of reality.

Through a combination of images, sound and text, each edition of this series asks Champalimaud Foundation researchers and clinicians to consider images from their own work, decoding these complex visuals and deepening our understanding of their work through this simple question: “What am I looking at?”

This otherworldly image from the Myeloma Lymphoma Research Group Lab brings the curtain down on season 1. 

This one could be straight from the Hubble telescope (Clue: it isn't!), but let's ask one final time - at least for now - 'What am I looking at?'
