Symphony of Science – Waves of Light

Symphony of Science returns! A musical celebration of light and how it tells the story of our universe. Featuring Brian Cox. More videos at http://symphonyofscience.com

Lyrics:

Why are we here? Where do we come from?
These are the most enduring of questions.

It’s a story we wouldn’t be able to tell without the one thing that connects us vividly to our vast cosmos: Light.

Through light we can stare back across the entire history of the universe, and discover how it all began.

Those ancient beams of light are messengers from the distant past. And they carry with them a story. The story of the origin of the universe.

Gaze up into the night sky
Capture the light
And read the story of the universe

Isn’t it a wonderful thing
We are part of the universe
Isn’t it a wonderful thing
The story of the universe is our story
Carried on waves of light

Wave after wave after wave of light
All the colors of the rainbow, colors of the rainbow

Light can transport us to the past
And we have become virtual time travelers

Night falls, darker and darker
And the universe fades into view
Night falls, darker and darker
Darker and darker

Stars being born in distant realms
Alien worlds created by gravity
Stars that shine with the light of a thousand suns
And vast swirling galaxies

These waves of light are messengers from across the cosmos. And through them, we have discovered the wonders of our galaxy, frozen in time.

Gaze up into the night sky
Capture the light
And read the story of the universe

Isn’t it a wonderful thing
We are part of the universe
Isn’t it a wonderful thing
The story of the universe is our story
Carried on waves of light

Wave after wave after wave of light
All the colors of the rainbow, colors of the rainbow

Billions and billions of suns
Shining in the sky
The story of the universe
Carried on waves of light

Gaze up into the night sky
Capture the light
And read the story of the universe

    I love this post. This Guy was one of Ron and my favorite TV science show hosts. He is so easy to understand and he has a way of drawing you into the information. Thanks.
