Autotune the Cosmos

Weekends are the time for internet videos.

I recently discovered Symphony of Science, a series of amazing songs and music videos created by John Boswell, which are made by splicing together recordings of talks and TV shows by prominent scientists like Carl Sagan, Bill Nye, Neil deGrasse Tyson, and Stephen Hawking, and setting them to music.

The Skeptic’s Guide to the Universe and Bad Astronomy have both featured Boswell and his beautiful videos, but if you’re out of the loop like I apparently am, you’ll enjoy these — and if you’re familiar with these works, here’s a brand new video that was just posted a few days ago:

More videos after the jump.

You can watch all nine videos at the Symphony of Science website. There, I just made your Saturday afternoon. You’re welcome.
