Symphony of Science – the Quantum World!


Uploaded by melodysheep on Sep 6, 2011

A musical investigation into the nature of atoms and subatomic particles, the jiggly things that make up everything we see. Featuring Morgan Freeman, Stephen Hawking, Michio Kaku, Brian Cox, Richard Feynman, and Frank Close.

“The Quantum World” is the eleventh installment in the ongoing Symphony of Science music video series. Materials used in the creation of this video are from:

Lyrics:

[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 bizzare
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 triump of science

(refrain)

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

About Troy Loy

I seek to learn through this site and others how to better my ability as a person and my skill at using my reason and understanding to best effect. I do fractal artwork as a hobby, and I'm working to develop it to professional levels, though I've a bit to go till I reach that degree of skill! This is a crazy world we're in, but maybe I can do a little, if only that, to make it a bit more sane than it otherwise would be.
