Science-Art by The Sci-Files:

"The Rainbow DNA"
“The Rainbow DNA”

Have you seen the latest art in The City of East Lansing’s Valley Court Park by Chelsie and Danny? “The Sci-Files Galaxy” is inspired by the image that Danny captured of the M81 galaxy using the 24-inch telescope at the Florida International University (FIU) Stocker Astroscience Center. Both Chelsie and Danny went to FIU for their undergraduate degrees, where they first met. Their time at the Stocker Astroscience Center strengthened their appreciation and love for science. This galaxy helps them convey that science is everywhere.

“The Sci-Files Galaxy”

Through “The Rainbow DNA” they show that not only is science everywhere but for everyone too. On The Sci-Files, they cover a wide range of topics that everyone can understand and appreciate. The icons on “The Rainbow DNA” represent some of the episodes of The Sci-Files. Next to the icons has S to represent season and E to represent episode with the numbers next to them, so that people can find the episode they’re interested in.
