NASA Combines Art & Science To Explore & Innovate
“The greatest scientists are artists as well.” ~Albert Einstein. Traditionally, art and science have been treated as separate disciplines, but when paired, they impact and enhance one another. A great deal of creativity is required to make scientific breakthroughs, and art is just as often an expression (or product) of scientific knowledge. NASA understands the interconnectedness of art and science, and the pairing is essential to the advancement of science because creativity involves imagination, and imagination is visualization. Things that can be conceptualized, visualized, or imagined in the mind are the things that can be created. NASA leverages the interconnectedness of art and science in the creation and execution of all its missions and in disseminating that information broadly.
