If you want a reference for some of the science and puns, check here.

Also it's okay if you get a little teary at the end.

I know! I wish I'd done better framing so more people would watch! I've failed the content!

This is truly excellent! I feeds directly into my childhood spent raised on PBS and Singing Science Records. Thanks so much for posting it!

Also gem-studded, the Bohemian Gravity pastiche. (Contains possibly the finest single-word lyrical pun in the history of science songs, but there are many almost as good...)

I enjoyed watching the expressions on their faces and that it was captioned. The best part was when I got to the end after the end and realized that they had MORE! Acapella Science!

The *work* they must have put into that. Holy. Thank you for sharing it!

THIS IS AMAZING! I'm glad you mentioned it in the metatalktails or I would have missed it. So good!!

Just seconding that I only saw this because of the metatalk thread. Love it!

Another visitor from the MeTa thread! Hooray belated self-promotion! This is so good, I love it.

(I shared it with the riverfront planetarium curator - I hope she loves it as much as I do.)

"I shared it with the riverfront planetarium curator"

Oh, fun! I get e-mails from her all the time on the Peoria Astronomy mailing list, but I'm not sure I've ever met her! SMALLEST WORLD.

She did seem to love it and claimed she was "grinning like a doofus" while watching it, so I'll say that's a win. You should say hi to her next time you go to a planetarium show and she's running it! She's a kind and wonderful person, and I'm sure she would love-love-love to hear how much joy your family gets out of the planetarium.

Finally got a chance to watch this (and a few of the others from A Capella Science - Entropic Time was delightful and the LIGO one was pretty great too) - thank you so much for posting it!

Wait he was actually singing backwards for the Entropic Time one?! That's wild!
