President Obama gave a speech at NASA on Thursday about the future of the United States space program. The content of his speech, however, isn't what I want to talk about. The speech reminded me of a series of beautiful compositions created by John Boswell collectively called The Symphony of Science.
The goal of the project is to bring scientific knowledge and philosophy to the public, in a novel way, through the medium of music. Science and music are two passions of mine that I aim to combine in a way that is intended to bring a meaningful message to listeners, while simultaneously providing an enjoyable musical experience.
One of the pieces, Our Place in the Cosmos, I find particulary relevant to meditate on while thinking about Mr. Obama's words on space.
