Some of you may have seen my earlier post on the Symphony of Science, making music videos and songs based on the words of famous scientists, put through Auto-tune to give it musicality.  The first one, A Glorious Dawn, was so sublime that its still stuck in my head, months later.  There are now six videos, plus a few remixes and alternate versions.  There are even apparently ring tones of a couple of them. (Just not for my plan, so I’m not sure how you get them)

Anyway, give them a look see, its great stuff.  These recent ones have even added a bunch of new scientists to the mix.  I may not like Richard Dawkins or his crusade against religion much, but he is right about science being poetry.

About

I'm a Trekker, a Brown-coat, a bibliophile, a Star Wars nut. Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Steampunk, mythology, anime, noir, detective stories it doesn't matter. I'm into pen and paper rpgs, console and pc games, board games. Want to argue for hours over who would win were the Enterprise-E and a Star Destroyer fight? Sure. Want to debate the advantages of the Way of the Open Palm or the Light Side? Definitely.

  1. Carl Sagan can make even the most existentially angsty person feel good about being insignificant. I’ll never get sick of listening to him talk.
