Catchy geeky science song involving Morgan Freeman? I"m so there.

People have studied samples from space (directly and via data gathered from stars). There are more elements on Earth than out there, because some elements have been made in labs.

There appear to be reasons why elements don`t naturally occur with larger numbers of protons in the nucleus. Certainly not 100 times as many.

It might happen, but I wouldn`t wait for it.

SlothOfDoom, after listening to your clip (and some other Sagan clips for comparison) one definitely is left with the impression what`s being said is poetry, and I can`t believe I`m gonna say this but, romantic even. (I`m floored I just said that).

Why would you auto-tune the voice of Morgan Freeman? =|

I think these Symphony of Science songs are getting progressively weaker. The first (and by far best) was obviously done out of passion, the newer ones seem much more forced. The incredible amount of auto-tuning doesn`t help. GD had a lot of auto-tuning as well, but it didn`t seem nearly as intrusive.


Just in case someone out there has been asleep in a cave, A Glorious Dawn is the first, and IMO best of this series.

While my meandering mind is on the subject of science-related stuff that I think is weird...we`re all made of mostly nothing physical and so is nearly all matter. The actual physical stuff of many millions of people would fit in a teaspoon. "Solid" matter is nearly all empty (in a physical sense) gaps between and within atoms.

I wish they`d ease off the autotuning. Autotuning may help set it to music, but it`s in danger of becoming the focus.

I remember wave/particle duality bending my head at school. Prior to that, I had the nicely neat simplified version of science. Careful study showing what stuff is and how it works, where it all fits neatly together, everything can be neatly defined and outcomes can be predicted to any degree of accuracy as long as you know the variables and the rules. Wave/particle duality was my first encounter with the rather more complicated reality. The next one that really stood out was when I read about the Heisenberg uncertainty principle. The idea that something can be fundamentally unknowable is weird.

I think I would have enjoyed it more if it wasn`t autotuned.

The ultimate triumph of science is putting an auto tune on Stephen Hawkins

F*cking beautiful. Not to turn this thread, but how anyone can equate the humdrum of man-made religion with the sheer, exquisite beauty of science is beyond me. Great post.

Do we have to autotune physics lessons now to keep the morons interested? I`m ok with that

This video contained 2 of the 4 people I would want to narrate the story of my life... Morgan Freeman (narrating my teen years) and Stephen Hawking (narrating my birth)... The others are Patrick Warburton as Brock Samson (narrating my adulthood) and George Takei (narrating my childhood)
