Sehr tolle Galerie voller Science-Fotografie von Fritz Goro auf Life.com. Bild oben: „Plastic skeleton showing the spots of body most likely to be affected by radioactive fallout in 1961.“
The celebrated evolutionary biologist Stephen Jay Gould once called Fritz Goro "the most influential photographer that science journalism (and science in general) has ever known." LIFE's science editor, Gerard Piel, praised Goro's extraordinary gift for capturing "abstractions, of the big ideas from the genetic code to plate tectonics." Here, LIFE.com presents Goro's most striking, imaginative, technically accomplished, unsettlingly graphic, and frequently downright beautiful science pictures.
