Carl Sagan – ‘A Glorious Dawn’ ft Stephen Hawking (Symphony of Science)

You know how I feel about Science and Music by now, right?

Where to even begin?

Okay. There is a group called Symphony of Science, and they describe themselves thusly:

“The Symphony of Science is a musical project headed by John Boswell designed to deliver scientific knowledge and philosophy in musical form.”

“A Glorious Dawn” (below) is their video that has been nominated for a Webby Award. (So, vote for it, if you can.)

Basically, this group combines music and the voices and images of science/scientists. The classic series Cosmos with Carl Sagan and Stephen Hawking from Stephen Hawking’s Universe are the ones featured in A Glorious Dawn.

Sound difficult to wrap your brain around? It isn’t, really. Just watch and see/hear for yourself. (And if watching this video makes you wish that you could go back and watch Cosmos again…Season 1 is available for free on Hulu.)

(If, like me, this song really gets to you, you can buy it on itunes. Just search for “A Glorious Dawn.)
