Symphony of Science - Onward to the Edge!

mp3:http://bit.ly/oRYyiV - A musical celebration of the importance and inspirational qualities of space exploration (human and robotic), as well as a look at some of the amazing worlds in our solar system. Featuring Neil deGrasse Tyson, Brian Cox, and Carolyn Porco. "Onward to the Edge" is the 12th installment in the Symphony of Science series. Materials used in this video are from : My Favorite Universe #7 - Onward to the Edge (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LEYoTw...) BBC Wonders of the Solar System Carolyn Porco TED talk (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xxXa9p...) NatGeo "Guide to the Planets" Thanks for watching! Lyrics: [Neil deGrasse Tyson] The act of moving onward means we pass these sign posts One of them was first leaving earth The next one is hanging out on the moon What's next? The planets Onward to the edge We're moving onward to the edge Here we are together This fragile little world [Brian Cox] This is our sun Just another star in a sea of stars The heart of the solar system Just another star in a sea of stars Mercury is the closest planet This tortured piece of rock has been stripped naked [Tyson] The moon has a sky It has a horizon It's another world It's got earth in the sky Just the way we have the moon in the sky (refrain) We're not the only world to think about Worlds unnumbered We're not the only world to think about Think about worlds unnumbered [Carolyn Porco] There is a powerful recognition That stirs within us When we see our own little blue ocean planet In the skies of other worlds The Saturn system Offers splendor beyond compare Because of its rings And very diverse moons [Tyson] These are no longer abstractions These are worlds Maybe there's life there They've changed how we think about Earth [Cox] "A mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam The pale blue dot" (Carl Sagan) (refrain) The laws of nature create Vastly different worlds With the tiniest of changes [Tyson] When I reach to the edge of the universe I do so knowing that along some paths of cosmic discovery There are times when, at least for now, One must be content to love the questions themselves

Well we have one for you. The concept: relativity. That strange fantastic relationship between time, distance, and mass. Before we're finished, I think you'll agree that truth is stranger than the strangest fiction. Why do the stars shine? Why does the galaxy light up? E equals MC squared That is the engine that lights up the stars Energy turns into mass E equals MC squared - That is the secret of the stars Now listen carefully: The faster you move THe heavier you get The energy of motion turns into M, your mass Energy of motion Energy equals Mass times the speed of light squared An awful lot of energy For a tiny amount of mass Light travels at the same speed No matter how you look at it No matter how I move, relative to you, Light travels at the same speed No matter who is doing the measurement And no matter what direction you are moving The speed of light is the same No matter what direction, or how fast As you travel faster Time slows down Everything slows down Time slows down when you move Time passes at a different rate Clocks run slow It's a monumental shift in how we see the world The beauty, the majesty, The power of the universe Into a single equation (refrain) It's a beautiful piece of science It's a beautifuly elegant theory It's a beautiful piece of science A planet like the Earth is kept in orbit Because it follows curves In the spatial fabric caused By the sun's presence Space and time are bent by stars and planets As things move through this curved space, they bend Now all of this is illustration of the fact that time and space are linked together. As you're moving through bent and curved space and time, You feel like you feel a force (x2) That force is gravity (refrain) That is the secret of the stars

SYMPHONY OF SCIENCE - WAVES OF LIGHT

Symphony of Science returns! A musical celebration of light and how it tells the story of our universe. Featuring Brian Cox.

Where do we come from? These are the most enduring of questions. It’s a story we wouldn’t be able to tell without the one thing that connects us vividly to our vast cosmos: Light. Through light we can stare back across the entire history of the universe, and discover how it all began. Those ancient beams of light are messengers from the distant past. And they carry with them a story. The story of the origin of the universe. Gaze up into the night sky Capture the light And read the story of the universe Isn’t it a wonderful thing We are part of the universe Isn’t it a wonderful thing The story of the universe is our story Carried on waves of light Wave after wave after wave of light All the colors of the rainbow, colors of the rainbow Light can transport us to the past And we have become virtual time travelers Night falls, darker and darker And the universe fades into view Night falls, darker and darker Darker and darker Stars being born in distant realms Alien worlds created by gravity Stars that shine with the light of a thousand suns And vast swirling galaxies These waves of light are messengers from across the cosmos. And through them, we have discovered the wonders of our galaxy, frozen in time. Gaze up into the night sky Capture the light And read the story of the universe Isn’t it a wonderful thing We are part of the universe Isn’t it a wonderful thing The story of the universe is our story Carried on waves of light Wave after wave after wave of light All the colors of the rainbow, colors of the rainbow Billions and billions of suns Shining in the sky The story of the universe Carried on waves of light Gaze up into the night sky Capture the light And read the story of the universe
