The image of “Starry Night” is popular in artistic circles, but it has almost become extremely popular in the circles of mathematicians, physicists and astronomers, because of the one secret it hides. In addition to being an outstanding artist, it turns out that Van Gogh was also a scientist, well ahead of his time. Because more than 100 years ago, he was able to conjure up on the canvas the astrophysical phenomenon that still causes scientists problems – stellar turbulence. This is still a poorly researched phenomenon, which scientists have only been seriously concerned with in the last couple of years, and is even related to the Big Bang and the emergence of Earth. It is a concept in fluid dynamics that is extremely difficult to comprehend even to the greatest minds.
