The Week in Life Science #3

Literally flat out here in the office; been a month of immense change and growth in the both the Life Science industry here in Ireland and indeed the science world in general. I managed to peel myself away from my newly-shouldered duties in my new office space to round up a nice mix of science, tech, industry and of course cute animal news. Please hit the titles if you want to read more from the source material or find links to any published sources.

Life Science in Motion #3

Some science-y gifs to take your mind off that stuff you really should be doing.

A Capella Science – Bohemian Gravity!

This is truly incredible. A student from McGill has used Queens classic to explain string theory. And this is no normal cover version, Tim Blais (youtube channel acapellascience) does this rendition completely a Capella, while explaining one of the most complex theories in science, WHILE remaining rhythmically, melodically and OVERWHELMINGLY faithful to Queens original masterpiece. I’m delighted this is getting the attention it deserves – well over a million views in about 2 weeks. To add to this bizarre and brilliant ensemble is an Einstein sock puppet who sings the guitar solo-y bit chipmunk style and more costume changes than the average Madonna tour.
