For your weekly viewing pleasure, here are the larger versions of this week’s channel photos.

Several of the photos—those featured on the Life Science, Physical Science, Environment, Humanities & Social Science, and Technology channels—come from Felice Frankel and George M. Whitesides’ new book, On the Surface of Things; you can read more about the inspiration behind these spectacular images in Page 3.14’s interview with Felice Frankel here.
