Life put together a gallery of the photographs of Fritz Goro, a German-born photographer for Life as well as Scientific American. Goro died in 1986, but was once called "the most influential photographer that science journalism (and science in general) has ever known." The photos are pretty amazing, for their subject matter and for their pure aesthetics. Check out the gallery over at Life.
