The Beauty of Diagrams
Vitruvian Man and DNA
Season 1  |  Episode 1  |  Foxtel Arts  |  February 6, 2017

A plaque was put aboard the unmanned Pioneer space probe in 1972 to communicate fundamental facts about Earth and its inhabitants to life on other planets. How did a single diagram fit everything in?
