Because I'm slower than
Artax in the Swamp of Sadness (my bad) a turtle in quicksand, this is the latest Symphony of Science that came out earlier this week. It's by far one of my favorites and features Morgan Freeman (who may or may yes have known a man who crawled to freedom through 500-yards of shit-smelling foulness) and some of the better lyric/beat mashups. It's a shame these things never make it on the radio. Also: me when I'm trying to win concert tickets. CURSE YOU, CALLER 19!
A musical investigation into the nature of atoms and subatomic particles, the jiggly things that make up everything we see. Featuring Morgan Freeman, Stephen Hawking, Michio Kaku, Brian Cox, Richard Feynman, and Frank Close.
Also included after the jump is the Symphony of Science from before this one, 'Children of Africa', that I somehow missed, which is all about humanity's origins, our similarity to primates, and our species' environmentally destructive tendencies. Like, for example, all the methane we produce by farting. *BUUUUUURP* Remember folks: better out the attic than the basement.
Hit the jump and get your learn on.
Thanks to Dave, Razorwire Coathanger and simon, who agree the time is ripe for a symphony of social studies.
