Brilliant.
Bohemian Gravity: This is just brilliant (H/t to +Avinash Jaisinghani for bringing this to my notice!)... here is the background from iO9 : Question: What do you get when you mix a cappella, sock puppets, string theory and Queen? Answer: The geekiest (and astonishingly good, musically speaking) cover of "Bohemian Rhapsody" EVAR. Easily the greatest physics-themed cover of the classic we've ever heard. Seriously. The thing's a masterpiece.


To be fair, "Bohemian Gravity" may well be the only physics-themed version of "Bohemian Rhapsody" ever made, but that doesn't change the fact that it is very, very well done. The creation of McGill University Masters candidate Timothy Blaise (who posted this link to his recently submitted thesis, along with the video), the track does way more than touch on some of the more confounding elements of string theory; from a compositional standpoint, it also manages to be an outstanding cover of "Bohemian Rhapsody," full stop. Also, there's an Einstein sock puppet.

"Scientists seem often surprised at discovering that there are clearly no closed systems out there, and that we, like much else in the universe, have fuzzy boundaries with the environment we live in. From "mind versus body" to "soul versus matter" , the hard boundaries are dissolving or will dissolve to some or greater extent with the march of science."
