Science in a Musical Way

10th April, @Desk.

The other day, I was going through my favorite Carl Sagan and Richard Feynman talks over the youtube and suddenly came across a musical jingle where Carl Sagan, Richard Feynman, Dr. Kaku, and other notables were seen "singing" out the science (  !!!  ). Well, I never knew before this, but there exists a musical project initiated by John Boswell, which aims to delivers the scientific tit-bits over a series of musical videos. 

The voices of the characters are modulated and toned, but they are their own words spoken over various shows aired till date. The website hosts all the videos made till date and offers free download. Most of them are asynchronous (non-rhythmic), with repetitive phrases but its fun watching them. My favorite ones are 'the quantum world' and 'the world of Dinosaurs' (remember Dr. Alice and Dallas Campbell?). Also, some of the phrases like 'the universe is made of 12 particles of matter, 4 forces of nature' (by Dr. Cox over TED talks in 'the quantum world') and 'the more we find, the more complete our understanding' (by Dr. Alice in 'the world of Dinosaurs') are quite 'catchy' and stayed on my mouth over the day.

Well, what is a better way to start the day than, letting Dr. Cox, Dr. Kaku, and Dr. Feynman sing you the Quantum Physics!!

Thank you SymphonyOfScience..!
