Science Movies

A couple of very cool biology movies.

The first is an animation of the inner life of a cell from Harvard University. I think it was made public last year.

It’s actually important to watch this with the sound on – the background music is incredibly boppy.

The second is an interpretive dance of protein synthesis, made at Stanford in 1971.

That’s right. An interpretive dance. About protein synthesis. From California. In the 70’s. Again, it’s important to have the sound on. The hippie music and the narration adapted from The Jabberwocky are not to be missed. If you want to skip the science explanation at the beginning, the actual dance starts a little after the three minute mark.
