The Light in the Cast Shadow

Even through the darkest parts of the pandemic so far, the efforts of science continue. The image depicts a scientist bathed in blue light, working with a florescent material, and in the shadow of Covid-19 and rising case numbers (new cases graph is based on data from the New York Times). The pursuit of knowledge can act as a light in the darkness caused by the looming dread of Covid-19, even in isolation.
