Día da ciencia

Esta semana celébrase o venres o día da Ciencia e os alumnos e alumnas de 4º acudirán á facultade de Ciencias para facer un obradoiro titulado “A química da vida”.

Acabo de atopar un vídeo en youtube titulado “The Quantum World” no que diversas personalidades explican a “minúscula” orixe da vida (o actor Thomas Freeman, o científico Stephen Hawking…) pero a gracia está en que o vídeo está montado coma se fose un tema de música electrónica e cun retrouso pegadizo e todo! A idea é dun tal John D. Boswell e dita montaxe forma parte dun proxecto chamado  “Symphony of Science” co que o tal John pretende divulgar ciencia pero dun xeito musical. Cando menos interesante. Pinchando aquí accederedes á súa páxina, na que atoparedes moitos máis vídeos e entre eles un bastante chulo sobre a orixe do home en África.

Está en inglés así que vos colgo aquí a letra, só tedes que facer un pequeno esforzo de traducción:

[Morgan Freeman]
So, what are we really made of?
Dig deep inside the atom
and you’ll find tiny particles
Held together by invisible forces
Everything is made up
Of tiny packets of energy
Born in cosmic furnaces

[Frank Close]
The atoms that we’re made of have
Negatively charged electrons
Whirling around a big bulky nucleus

[Michio Kaku]
The Quantum Theory
Offers a very different explanation
Of our world

[Brian Cox]
The universe is made of
Twelve particles of matter
Four forces of nature
That’s a wonderful and significant story

[Richard Feynman]
Suppose that little things
Behaved very differently
Than anything big
Nothing’s really as it seems
It’s so wonderfully different
Than anything big
The world is a dynamic mess
Of jiggling things
It’s hard to believe

[Kaku]
The quantum theory
Is so strange and bizarre
Even Einstein couldn’t get his head around it

[Cox]
In the quantum world
The world of particles
Nothing is certain
It’s a world of probabilities

(refrain)

[Feynman]
It’s very hard to imagine
All the crazy things
That things really are like
Electrons act like waves
No they don’t exactly
They act like particles
No they don’t exactly

[Stephen Hawking]
We need a theory of everything
Which is still just beyond our grasp
We need a theory of everything, perhaps
The ultimate triumph of science

(refrain)

[Feynman]
I gotta stop somewhere
I’ll leave you something to imagine
