Via fellow Discover blogger Sean Carroll, I came across Jorge Cham's podcast/comic/video about cosmology. I'm embedding it here, not just because it's a very good summary of where we stand in understanding the stuff of the cosmos, but because Cham--he of PhD comics--has done something fascinating here. He has combined three different media into something new. I think, on the whole, it works very well. It moves a bit too fast for my eye sometimes, and can get a little herky jerky. But a living comic illustration of a scientist talking? Me likes.
