Carl Sagan Awesomeness

Oct 8, 01:44 PM · from the mouth of Tyler

I just found this buried deep in the comments of a Gizmodo article, and it’s the coolest thing I’ve seen on YouTube in a while. Some guy who goes by the moniker “Colorpulse” took clips from Carl Sagan’s 1980 TV series Cosmos, and spliced them together with an incredible music score in which Sagan’s voice is synthesized to sing the melody. There’s also an appearance by Stephen Hawking. This is just so totally cool. And it makes me want to see the TV series!

    Excellent find Tyty! I sat in awe watching this – this guy seems to think about all sorts of things that are just out of this world and beyond our understanding. I love it, and I want more! The chorus they chose is especially thought-provoking: “a still more glorious dawn awaits, not a sunrise but a galaxy-rise, a morning filled with four hundred billion suns, the rising of the milky way”. Whoa.

    Totally. I just watched it again and was going to mention those very lyrics, but you beat me to it! If you click the YouTube logo on the video, you’ll be taken to the YouTube page, where the artist (musician/videographer) has a link to his website where you can download files of the song and video. I did.

    Pretty awesome stuff.

    At some points, Sagan’s voice reminds me of Kermit the Frog. :)
