Stunning science images the best for 2011

The international competition – awarded by the journal Science and the US National Science Foundation (NSF) – recognises the year’s best images, videos and interactive games that convey complex science ideas. Winning entries must not only capture attention, but help the viewer grasp scientific research, when words alone might fall short.
