The Engineer’s Apprentice

October 14, 2009

So I was listening to some classical music on the radio the other day, and they played Beethoven’s Pastoral Symphony. You know, the one from Fantasia. The one with all the centaurs. (on a side note, apparently the original had some racist elements to it, search youtube for the “uncut” version and you’ll see, I don’t believe I ever saw the uncut).

To get back to my point…I was thinking what we need is a Fantasia for Science. The same way that colorful little centaurs or dancing mushrooms or dinosaurs made classical music accessible to children for decades to come, we need a similarly splendid “digestible by the masses” scientific cornucopia of media. I don’t know what that would be, just something to sink your teeth into.
