The Symphony of Science

Music is science.

The Symphony of Science is a musical project headed by John Boswell whereby science and philosophy are delivered in musical form.

There have been four installments, and I am including all of them here. I hope you enjoy auto-tune. In my opinion, it gets better with each video.

The newest video, released yesterday, is the last in order on this page, and includes Carl Sagan, David Attenborough, and Jane Goodall. It is titled "The Unbroken Thread."

First, "A Glorious Dawn," featuring Carl Sagan and Stephen Hawking.

Let me stop right here and say that the mysteries and beauty of our planet rival anything seen on Pandora, in the movie Avatar, and I love that movie. That sentiment is brought out in the next video.

OK, the next video is "We are all Connected," and features Carl Sagan, Richard Feynman, Neil deGrasse Tyson, and Bill Nye.

The third video is "Our Place in the Cosmos," featuring Carl Sagan, Robert Jastrow, Richard Dawkins, Stephen Hawkins, and Michio Kaku.

Finally, "The Unbroken Thread."

More information, and the lyrics are included at the link above.
