This science channel just launched with a great video on why the sky looks the way it does. What I love about it (apart from being the scientific consultant) is that the host is an artist, and an amazing one at that. She is a professional Jazz singer and actress. On top of that, she just learned how to draw with oil on canvas just to make the explanations of scientific concepts in these videos more accessible. Subscribe and enjoy!

Spot on. We need to work as hard on communicating our science to the public as we do working on the discoveries themselves.

Can you describe quantum mechanics in 5 words or less? The world's experts are still at it... #5wordsqm @seancarrol

"Real Black Magic Calculus" doesn't suffice?
