|1.Here's a fun new physics song video with awesome percussion (now correctly synced) and whistling, about Hooke and Newton, and how, despite their rivalry, they are forever linked in the physics of oscillators. We even obtained video of Hooke & Newton singing along!|
|2. Holy Smokes! Brian May, lead guitarist for Queen, and also an astrophysicist, has written a song about the New Horizons space mission! May has been a scientist on the New Horizons team for 3 years, and the PI, Alan Stern, asked him to write a song about it, commemorating its recent encounter with Ultima Thule, a Kuiper Belt object which is the furthest away thing that one of our spacecraft has ever encountered. Photos of the encounter have been released just within the last 48 hours.
Video of the song here. Details about the song here.
