Science: a Wondrous Pursuit
These are just two of the many Symphony of Science videos that are on Youtube; they all intrigue me very much. Unfortunately, as a nonscientist, I may never really understand the technical details of physics, biology, or other sciences, but the importance of videos like these is that the wider public can really appreciate the beauty and poetry that flows from study of the natural world. The awe-inspiring scenes of scientific eye-candy combine with musically-tuned quotes from great modern thinkers. What more can you ask for?
