The "Symphony of Science" videos

I have a dozen more things bookmarked from this week, but it's getting late, so I'll conclude with this pair of remarkable videos. [note there are 50 new posts today - two pages - so don't forget page two...]

The Symphony of Science is an ever-growing set of music videos designed to present the most basic concepts of science in a visually and audibly attractive fashion. The content is a mashup of memorable phrases spoken by some the greatest scientists of our time, modified by the technique of auto-tuning, which some people find off-putting (but it tends to grow on you...)

The first video above presents Feynman, Hawking, Tyson, Dawkins and others in a 3-minute summation of what science is. The second offers Sagan, Attenborough, and Goodall extolling the marvels of life and evolution:
  • "Every cell is a triumph of natural selection."
  • "Those are some of the things that molecules do given 4 billion years of evolution."
  • "The secrets of evolution are Time and Death."
There are three more videos at the Symphony of Science website, where you can learn more about the project and support it with a donation.

p.s. - I recommend viewing these full-screen.
