Photos from around the country show just how massive the March For Science really is
You don't need a scientific calculator to know that the March for Science was a massive success.
Stretching across the United States — as well as globally from the North Pole to New Zealand — the March for Science saw tens of thousands of people take to the streets on Earth Day in many cities, adding up to totals much higher nationwide.
Here are a few photos that begin to capture just how huge crowds nationwide became throughout the Earth Day celebration.

Though no official numbers have come in, organizers estimate that 40,000 people showed up for science in Washington, D.C., according to Science.
Los Angelenos crowded around Pershing Square in observance of Earth Day.
One Twitter user described Chicago's festivities as "pretty crowded."
Sam Houston Park hosted a massive crowd of protesters, as well.
