A few weeks ago I made a video outlining why I think science is important. This was part of a much larger project started by Alom Shaha in London, to show people, well, why science is important. He got lots of scientists and educators to make videos or write comments on the topic, and they're fascinating to read. And now Alom has created a video wrapping all this together. It's very well done, and well worth your time to watch. There were any number of times I found myself smiling goofily at how wonderful this is.
