Dear Extropes,

If one colors the travelling path of a Jovian dust streams particle
with the electrostatic charge potential that the dust particle is
carrying, then those tiny dust motes generate their own Art Forms.

Spaghetti colorati!

Francis Bacon, one of the Enlightenment founders, said:
"Science should be poetry, and poetry science."

My twist on his statement is:
"Science should be art, and art science."

This artful demonstration is brought to you
courtesy of the Jovian dust streams particles.
