Nature presented the award-winning photography of Hang Li

 

 

Recently, the international authoritative journal Nature launched the 2018 #ScientistAtWork photography contest, and one of the works photographed by Hang Li, a Ph.D. candidate at Chinese Antarctic Center of Surveying and Mapping, Wuhan University, was finally awarded and the work was published on the April 26th issue of Nature magazine.

Hang used to be a member of Chinese National Antarctic Research and Expedition team, and the winning work “Space from the Antarctic” was taken during his expedition. In the column “A photo celebration of scientists at work” wrote, “A panorama of the night sky from Zhongshan Station in Antarctica shot by geodesist Hang Li of China’s Wuhan University in Hubei. For two months of polar night, Li lived in darkness, cold and isolation.”
The #ScientistAtWork photo contest was initiated by Nature magazine. It aims to show the public the unknown side of their work through the perspective of scientists all over the world. Winning entries were selected by Nature art editors on the basis of visual impact. “Scientists devote endless time and energy over the course of their careers to answering certain questions or solving specific problems.”
Hang’s astrophotography used to be adopted by NASA and displayed at the Royal Observatory in Greenwich, London, UK. He also won the gold medal of the first Chinese National Time-Lapse Photography Contest, and published feature articles on many occasions in the magazines such as Chinese National Geography and Chinese National Astronomy.
