I somehow missed it when it came out, but the folks at IRrelevant Astronomy have a great video about how stars die, and it has Sean Astin (Samwise!) and Sandeep Parikh (Zaboo!).

IRrelevant Astronomy is a very funny web series about infrared astronomy put together by folks at Spitzer Space Telescope, and they're all pretty good. This one is a followup for <a href="http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/badastronomy/2009/10/26/felicia-day-collides-galaxies/" target="_blank"a great video about galaxies featuring Felicia Day. They also have a couple

with a guy named Wil Wheaton. Never heard of him myself, but he has promise as an actor, I think. If you have the time, you should watch 'em all. They're funny, and well done, and you just might learn something.

Tip o' the beryllium mirror to Jennifer Ouellette on Google+.
