University engineers' mix of great shots

Abstract:
A NEW online photo exhibition from Cambridge University aims to reveal the hidden beauty of engineering research.

The photos range from close-up images of molecules and nanostructures to a grand view of the Earth from the edge of space.

Staff and students from the university's Department of Engineering submitted the pictures for a photographic competition.

The winning entry was Earth from 32km, taken with a camera suspended from a high altitude balloon. A team of engineering undergraduates - Henry Hallam, Robert Fryers, Carl Morland, Daniel Strange and Iain Waugh - launched "Nova 1" into the stratosphere last September as part of a programme aimed at firing a rocket into space for less than 1,000.
