I like the text description Michael has highlighted; perhaps this graphic can complement that by providing a way to explore and talk about aspects of science that the text description raises.
The graphic is part of an outreach program, with a by-line of ‘Understanding how science really works’, that looks worth exploring for those interested in outreach.
I’d usually offer a hat-tip here, but I’ll freely admit I’ve lost track of what blog I saw this graphic on.
