Science-up your screens with these free backgrounds

So, you’re stuck inside for a while. That doesn’t mean things have to be drab. Grab one of our new, free downloads and bring some scientific inspirations to your device (and your Zoom meeting backgrounds).

Zoom meetings got you sluggish? Want to tap out from Hangouts? Hey, it happens. But now, you can fend off the stuck-inside-again doldrums with some scientific inspiration from a new digital background… or nine.

Perimeter graphic designer Gabriela Secara has created and curated some free downloadable wallpapers for any device, and they serve as pretty wicked web-meeting backgrounds, too.

Whether it’s a painting of a black hole, a photo of Perimeter Institute (shout-out to Tom Arban for that one!), or a dark matter image, we’ve got you — or rather, your screens — covered.

Check out the wallpapers below and fill out the form at the bottom of this page to receive them all. We’d love to see these wallpapers in action! Take a screenshot and share it with us on TwitterFacebook, or Instagram!

A preponderance of astronomical evidence suggests that the galaxy is filled with dark matter. Despite knowing remarkably little about what this dark matter is, we expect that it is not composed of ordinary matter. Though we have spent 30 years expecting that it may be related to pressing open problems in fundamental physics, a heroic […]
