Science comics as tools for science education and communication: a brief exploratory study
A paper based on the author’s dissertation research which examined the use of science comics as tools for science education, scientific literacy and communication. The paper gives an overview of the comics that already communicate science and a literature review shows that comics can be used for encouraging scientific literacy with education and communication as its basis.

The Forbidden Symmetries
The emergence of quasi-periodic tiling theories in mathematics and material science is revealing a new class of symmetry, which had never been accessible before. Because of their astounding visual and structural properties, quasi-periodic symmetries can be ideally suited for many applications in art and architecture; providing a rich source of ideas for articulating form, pattern, surface and structure. However, since their discovery, the unique long-range order of quasi-periodic symmetries, is

1.4 The origin of the vertebrates

Vertebrates such as ourselves are by definition animals with a backbone (or vertebral column, paired limbs, a skull and various other structures. Until recently vertebrates were thought to extend back only into late Ordovician times, some 450 million years ago. At this time fossils of strange-looking fish with bony headshields, such as Sacabambaspis (Atlas, pp. 70-71), appear in the fossil record. These jawless fish (called agnathans) are only very distantly related to the sole
