The Latest Symphony of Science Video Starring Neil deGrasse Tyson, Plus A Birthday Shout To Carl Sagan

That’s John Boswell’s latest Symphony of Science installment, “Onward to the Edge!” It includes Neil deGrasse Tyson, as heard on the latest Nerdist Podcast, plus bits of Brian Cox narrating the BBC’s Wonders of the Solar System and a TED Talk by Carolyn Porco.  These things are genius, in more ways than one.

There’s also Cox reading a line from the late, great Carl Sagan in there. Today would have been Sagan’s 77th birthday. His influence on countless young minds is incalcuable. (Insert “billions” reference here)  That’s worth celebrating.  And as we've heard recently, Sagan’s epic Cosmos is getting a sequel series on Fox, hosted by… Neil deGrasse Tyson. Everything’s connected.
