The Importance of Graphic Illustration in Astronomy – Personal Essay Query
I'm a Canadian currently studying in the UK in a BA (Hons) Graphic Design degree course in Essex. I have always been severely interested in astronomy and the science behind it. I remember being fascinated by images of comets and nebulae in National Geographic World magazine back in the 80s'.
I'm writing an essay, and ultimately a dissertation next year, on the importance and benefit of accurately designing visuals for astronomical discoveries. I'll give a recent example of Oumuamua, and how we knew it's shape was oblong due to it's apparent change in magnitude while it was tumbling through our solar system – but any telescope imaging shows only a small object in a field of star trails. Enter the artists representation to help further illustrate what everyone was so excited about. I do wonder how accurate, to the science, they should be – as well as just how much artistic license is too much. Personally I feel it's important that we have these visuals to help resolve the understanding of what we're looking at so people aren't saying "Oh, that dot? That's it?" I realise astrophotography is a big help, but there are times when a lens will only go so far.
If anyone has time I'd appreciate your input on this.
Thank you for your time

People believe it is designed, but they fail to realize how FUCKIN LONG it took. That's why an essay should be thoughtful. For that, I like to use https://www.reddit.com/r/collegehub/comments/wfcbn9/best_essay_writing_service_reddit_20222024/. We have been here for 200,000,000 years, or 2 days, in a single second. This is 437 years in the cosmos. It may have only taken about 2-3 billion years for most of the planet or universe to form, but that's still a long time. My best estimate is that atoms typically collide to form spheres. So, when the particles combined, they started spheres. These particles continued to grow, becoming planets and the building blocks of the Earth's cells as they did so.

Paid creative writing courses have never seemed to me to be that crucial to the writing process. Many people have succeeded without them.
