The Symphony of Science is a wonderful project taking words from famous scientists and using an autotuner to create music. It's pretty popular; the first one has over 3 million views on YouTube! The newest version has statements by a dozen different scientists, all talking about what science is and what it does. As Richard Dawkins says, science is the Poetry of Reality: Pretty cool. I love the sentiment, and it's fun to see how many friends are in there, too. And you know what? Everything they say in there is true.

Tip o' the semiquaver to Julia Sherred.
