“We Are Star Dust”

Another offering in John Boswell’s beautiful “Symphony of Science” series. He labels this one, “We Are Star Dust,” which is not a metaphor, or … not just a metaphor. It’s also a plain scientific fact. Boswell is working on both sides of our brains with these science/music videos. His work reminds us that if anything […]
