Sure, you love Carl Sagan and Bill Nye, but have you ever heard them sing? Well, perhaps “sing” is the wrong word here, but Symphony of Science, a music project created by John Boswell uses Autotune software to set clips from speeches and science television programs to music. The goal is, “to bring scientific knowledge and philosophy to the public, in a novel way, through the medium of music.” Kind of cheesy, yet kind of inspiring, the latest clip was created in collaboration with The Planetary Society on their 35th anniversary and features Sagan, Nye, Emily Lakdawalla, and Neil deGrasse Tyson.
