This week Science magazine unveiled the winners of the 2011 International Science & Engineering Visualization Challenge (sponsored by the AAAS and the NSF). The award “honors recipients who use visual media to promote the understanding of scientific research.” That sounds a bit dry, until you realize we’re talking about stained mouse eye slices, or a really, really close-up shot of baby cucumber skin. (Those images took first place and honorable mention, respectively, for photography.) 
 
A selection of the winners is shown in the slideshow above. You can see all the winning entries here.
