09:36 pm - Symphony of Science to space musings
I've seen several links to videos from the Symphony of Science site today, and having watched them, they are well worth checking out. It's not the world's best music, but it's fun and I enjoyed it. Also, it made me think how sad it was that Carl Sagan died during the very first days of the discovery of extra-solar planets - once again I am struck with the fact that death is definitely something we need to cure. In any case, with luck, soon the Kepler Mission will discover terrestrial planets and tell us approximately how common they are, filling in yet another term in the famous Drake equation.

If we cure death, we DEFINITELY need to cure reproduction.

Watching the "apple pie" video (more times than I'm ready to admit!) led to me hunting down Cosmos on hulu.com, which reminded me of just how great a communicator he was about science in general. Not just the raw factual substance of it, but the wonder and excitement of the pursuit involved. He is sorely missed.
