Ladies and Gentlemen, According to Greek mythology, a long time ago in Crete there lived an architect and inventor, Daedalus. He worked at the court of king Minos, who commissioned him with constructing a labyrinth for Minotaur. Daedalus together with his son Icarus dreamed of escaping from Crete. He dreamed of impossible - flying like a bird. As the myth has it, he managed to do that - together with his son, he took to the skies on wings made of feathers glued with wax.

Such inventions as an artificial heart, eye, kidney and many other vital organs have already been tested. Autonomous cars a.k.a. 'driverless cars' are now undergoing their test rides across the USA and may appear in Europe in no time at all. Unmanned aerial vehicles soar in the sky. (...more)

Ludwik Hirszfeld, a distinguished Polish doctor, microbiologist and immunologist, once said, that the best microscope will not contribute to the scientific progress if it is kept in the closet. Paraphrasing his words, we could add that the most interesting scientific research is conducted in secret, behind the closed doors of laboratories, and no one knows anything about it. It was probably the idea of the organizers of the 5th Photo Competition 'Science on camera', which, this year, is titled 'Science - idea in practice'.(...more)
