Every branch of science is beautiful, I can admit it, you can admit it. But astronomy, astronomy is to eat her dust, you know cause it's space. Space you know? Ever wondered how all those beautiful space images are made? So how invisible wavelengths are transformed into viewable forms?  And when does the science stop and the art begin? It’s a mixture of science, art, based in both the abstract and in data. Watch closely in the video below, at how scientific measurements are translated into pure, informative, inspiring beauty.

Déspina Kortesidou

Déspina Kortesidou was born with the April flowers sometime in the '90s in the sunny peninsula of Greece. She is a graduating master student of neuroscience & metabolism, and a born adventurer.

(3rd person statements sound so official, love it)

She founded In Whirl of Inspiration, back in 2011 when she was (just) a biology student, in the island of Crete. In Whirl of Inspiration started as a creative and writing outlet for when studying molecules, became too monotonous. Recently, she started writing a children book and a not-so-children's book about the civil war in Greece. She has a soft spot for cheese, elder people, and (her own) jokes, but can't tell any as she ruins them by laughing too early. She enjoys sharing advice for eating healthier, or inspiring people to cover themshelves with plants, color and confetti.

Feel free to email her at hello@inwhirlofinspiration.com, or find her on Instagram and Twitter. (breaking the 3rd person narration to thank you properly)

Thank you so much for reading!
