### Every picture tells a story

John D. Barrow, renowned Cambridge cosmologist and author, director of the Millennium Mathematics Project, and regular contributor to *Plus* has won the Royal Society Michael Faraday Prize, which is awarded annually for excellence in communicating science to the general public. The prize
lecture, entitled *Every picture tells a story*, took place in London last week and is a fascinating tour through scientific imagery. It has now been put online on the Royal Society website. Happy watching!

To hear a version of Barrow's talk focusing on mathematics, listen to the enhanced *Plus* podcast Cosmic imagery. It comes with pictures!
