International Year of Chemistry

In 2009 we posted about Simon Page’s beautiful poster series for the International Year of Astronomy. Well, he’s followed them up with a new series, this time for the International Year of Chemistry. I for one am a big fan of chemistry and a big fan of Simon Page. Check out the rest of the series on his site.

Here’s a bit more about the International Year of Chemistry:

The goals of IYC2011 are to increase the public appreciation of chemistry in meeting world needs, to encourage interest in chemistry among young people, and to generate enthusiasm for the creative future of chemistry. The year 2011 will coincide with the 100th anniversary of the Nobel Prize awarded to Madame Marie Curieā€”an opportunity to celebrate the contributions of women to science. The year will also be the 100th anniversary of the founding of the International Association of Chemical Societies, providing a chance to highlight the benefits of international scientific collaboration.

Apparently this year is the International Year of Astronomy. Simon Page created this beautiful series of posters for the IYA09 as a self-promotional project. Apparently the IYA09 learned about Simon’s project, agreed that the posters are lovely and will be using them in their promotional work.

The posters are available for purchase here.
