What you see depends of how your look: Time and space in scientific imagery

Scientists often claim to create objective versions of reality – but are subjectivity and human judgment always involved?


Time seems to flow by – so how can it be captured in a static image? Space stretches out in every direction – so how can it be represented in two dimensions?
