I saw this video posted at Bad Astronomy and since I can’t really say it better than Phil:
In April 2010, physicist and outspoken lover of science Brian Cox spoke at a TED meeting about the state of science funding in the UK and the world, and why we do science. Trust me, you need to find the 17 minutes today to watch this.
Brian Cox really manages to speak to the science geek in me. Near the end he reads a famous piece by Carl Sagan… and at that very moment I got something in my eye. Watch the video, you’ll be better off for it.
