Did you know that chemistry is beautiful? Scientists at the University of Science and Technology of China and Tsinghua University Press have worked to share that with the world. They’ve captured real chemical reactions in 4K ultra high definition video, and the result speaks for itself.

They say that they were inspired by the early 20th century work of Ernst Haeckel, named Art Forms in Nature. His work showed how beautiful science and nature could be and inspired many a reader.

We’re not sure how the work that Beautiful Chemistry is doing will hold up to the ages, but it sure inspired us.
