Here's a great video of physicist Richard Feynman speaking about science and beauty, combined with some gorgeous images.
I've never understood why some wrongly believe that scientists, and the scientifically-minded (I include myself in this group), don't appreciate the beauty in life as much as other people do.
Feynman points out that scientists look upon the world in the same way as everybody else.
But they also have a deeper factual understanding of certain aspects of reality. This enhances, rather than diminishes, the scientific appreciation of beauty.
