Mr. Eccles Presents | The Nature of Sound – Symphony of Science



A journey into the world of sound and music with Brian Greene, Bill Nye, Yehudi Menuhin and more. Sound has always fascinated me – the way mere vibrations in the air can evoke such strong emotions, and how humans create our own meaning from arbitrary motion of molecules. We are like gods, building huge cathedrals of sonic beauty from minute, invisible physical forces that surround us.

Beyond the Horizon | Symphony of Science


Welp, I’m blogging a couple of days earlier than expected, and below I offer the latest Symphony of Science piece, with a 13 word story to follow later this morning. Stay cool, stay cosmic, and in the Kai’Siri tongue of Soruggon

TfTkTts. (Talotaa frang, Talotaa kas, Talotaa tranga suulat.)

Created in collaboration with The Planetary Society on their 35th anniversary. Bill Nye, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Emily Lakdawalla and Carl Sagan reflect humanity’s next frontier: beyond the horizon.

Special thanks to everyone at the Planetary Society for making this song & video possible! Check out all the awesome things they are doing at http://planetary.org

Lyrics:

Bill Nye:
We are at a time in history where we can change the world
What do we want to pass on to future generations?
That we just stayed here on Earth, that we didn’t look out
to find out where we come from and are we alone?
No!
We want to pass on this joy. This excitement.

Neil deGrasse Tyson:
When a nation dreams big, everything falls into place.

Nye:
Beyond the horizon
Over the next hill
That’s where we make discoveries

Tyson:
That’s the next frontier

Nye:
It is in us to look farther and deeper
It’s deep within us
That is why we are all here
Over the next hill, beyond the horizon

Tyson:
Dream of tomorrow
Long for the open seas
Call for this adventure

Dream big
Dream of tomorrow
Long for the open seas

Emily Lakdawalla:
There are lots of huge frozen worlds
Caught beyond Neptune
Huge frozen worlds
Seek out these other worlds

Hundreds of other worlds
Caught beyond Neptune
Seek out these other worlds

Tyson:

Audacious visions have the power to alter mindsets
To change assumptions about what is possible

[refrain]

Nye:

If we are to discover life on another world,
It will change the way everyone feels about what it is to be a living thing in the Cosmos.

Tyson:
Is a virus alive? Is crystal alive?
Does life need this, does life need liquid water?
Is a virus alive? Does life have metabolism?
Does life need, life need, life need, life need this?

Is a virus alive? Is crystal alive?
They’re asking these questions

Bill Nye:
Working together I claim we can
Change the world!

Carl Sagan:

There’s just a tremendously exciting prospect called solar sailing
And it works exactly as an ordinary sailboat does

It takes you to where you wanna go
It’s a whole new kind of idea
It travels on the wind from the sun
X2

Tyson:
These dreams prevail in the citizen’s ambitions.

It is time to set sail for the 21st Century.

[refrain]

Tyson:
Find your place in space
Space is vast and unexplored
And there’s a lot of work to do.

Lyrics:

Crusin’ underwater
And they have these huge muscles, huge muscles
Crusin’ underwater
And so they see this thing kind of moving

They can see you in pitch blackness
And hear your heart pounding inside your chest
It’s gonna do a lot of damage
Even if it doesn’t bite you

They can sniff out a drop of blood
They can see you in pitch blackness
Crusin’ underwater
And so they see this thing kind of moving

WOOM! Bam! They get it
It’s the bite of the Great White
It’s almost a death blow without even biting it
It’s the bite of the Great White

Taking it by surprise
Inflicting a massive bite
Taking it by surprise
Inflicting a massive bite

Great whites can sense blood in the water
3 miles away
And they don’t keep us waiting long
And they don’t keep us waiting long

When the white sharks want something
They really go hard to get it
If they wanted us, nobody would get away
Nobody would get away

Crusin’ underwater
And they have these huge muscles, huge muscles
Crusin’ underwater
And so they see this thing kind of moving

WOOM! Bam! They get it
It’s the bite of the Great White
It’s almost a death blow without even biting it
It’s the bite of the Great White
