My e-friend and fellow scientist Clifford Johnson is a kindred spirit: he loves science, and he loves talking about it. He does me one better, though: he's creating a series of wonderful science videos that teach some sort of basic concept everyone should know. His first in this series, Shine a Light, is, well, see for yourself: Isn't that great? I love the music, and the way the actors are moving really brings the point home. I watched this twice; once just to see it, then a second time paying attention to the details. It's really good, and if you are an educator you really need to show this to your students. The next one he's working on? "Laser". I can't wait to see it!
