If you wish to make an apple pie from scratch... you must first invent the universe

Sometimes the internet is a vast and wonderful place, and other times it's just scary. Today however, I found a new twist on a classic from my youth. Growing up, I watched Carl Sagan's Cosmos, which at the time was this big to-do (sort of the modern-day counterpart to programs like The Universe or Planet Earth). It was supplemental material to my junior high school science classes.

Sagan, had this weird knack for not only being one of the champions of science, astronomy, the search for extra terrestial intelligence, and more... but he also had this weird poetic way of seeing the cosmos, which someone decided the soundbytes for, could be used to make a mix song.

And if you dig it as much as I did, you can download the video, song, or a ringtone friendly version here:

In other news about the cosmos, I hear that scientists have determined that the milkyway galaxy's center has alot of ethyl formate, which is a chemical responsible for giving raspberries their taste, and has a smell like rum. So in otherwords the Milkyway may taste like raspberries and smell like rum.
