"If you wish to make an apple pie from scratch, you must first invent the universe." Wise words from one of the most famous astronomers of our time - Carl Sagan. Throughout his life, the Cosmos host has helped popularize science and spread consciousness about the universe we live in. His life's work has inspired this brilliant track, "A Glorious Dawn," which originally debuted on Youtube in 2009 (see video below), the 75th anniversary of Sagan's birth. Created by John Boswell for Symphony of Science, the track adds a moving beat to Sagan's auto-tuned words, complete with guest spot from Stephen Hawking. A must for the music and science nerdus.
