“These beings with soaring imagination”

The latest from Symphony of Science. Outstanding.

Lyrics here.

It’s wonderful to see the female scientists — Alice Roberts, Carolyn Porco, Jane Goodall — come to the fore on this one. And bittersweet that the video celebrates, among other things, the triumph of human spaceflight, just as the American shuttle program is coming to an end. Perhaps others will pick up the torch of exploration and run with it. I for one still hope to eventually see us, the children of Africa, venture forth to the stars.
