Thousands of people across the world amalgamated to participate in a one of its kind global movement, 'March for Science' to defend the crucial role science plays in the society.
The move came in the wake of science-based policies being rejected by the politicians and their hostile attitude towards the value of science.
The event embarked in Washington DC at 9 a.m. on Saturday with scientists moving out of their labs and hitting the street to showcase their support for the march.
Hundreds of science advocates visited the Washington Mall for speeches and teach-ins by scientists disturbed by the rise of so-called "alternative facts" around crucial issues like climate change following the election of Donald Trump.
Here are some glimpses of first ever global movement in the support of science:
The 'March for Science' movement even reached Greenland, where scientists are seeing first hand the effects of climate change.
The one of its kind global movement had one of its kind 'March for Science' moment when the scientists went underwater at Wake Atoll.
