  • The Ouroboros

The Ouroboros is a serpent that eats its own tail, representing both beginnings and endings. This serpent is often used as a symbol for eternity and immortality. Due to this, our Ouroboros takes the shape of an infinity sign, with the different research subjects of science represented along its body. From head to tail we can find astronomy (the universe, stars, solar system), geoscience (earth science, volcanology/geology), biology (organisms, cells, genes), chemistry (molecules, atoms), and physics (quarks, elementary particles). By combining all these research fields, we aim to uncover the beauty of nature through the world of science.
