Carl Sagan, A Glorious Dawn ft. Stephen Hawking (Symphony of Science)

Part 78 of my youtube countdown takes us to the stars and beyond with the legendary Carl Sagan “singing” about the wonder and beauty of the universe with Stephen Hawking.  Some brilliant interneter cobbled this autotune masterpiece together featuring Sagan and Hawking rhapsodizing their best and most profound quotes into a groovy psychedelic techno jam.  Carl Sagan, one of the world’s greatest science popularizers, and all around decent human being, had a beautiful universal outlook.  He was able to advocate clearly, like no other astronomer before him, the endless magnificence of the universe, inspiring millions worldwide to look to the stars.  He was also a huge proponent of SETI, (the search for extra-terrestrial intelligence), even writing the book Contact, which later became the feature film starring Jodi Foster.  Sagan’s life was tragically cut short by cancer in 1996.  Hawking, the world’s greatest physicist, also makes an appearance in this video.  Hawking, as most know, suffers from Lou Gerhig’s Disease, a condition that has nearly paralyzed him, yet has not stopped his brain, or his tremendous work output, as he has contributed a wealth of mind-blowing knowledge to the world of science.  Anyway, this video is a fantastic thought provoking clip, and well worth watching.  Enjoy.
