The YouTube Universe
A year or so ago I gave a public lecture to a very general audience called 'Protons to Planets to Penguins'. It was a very brief, and somewhat simplified, overview of how the chemistry of life is something that we see out in the cosmos - carbon molecules and the like. By way of an experiment I decided to make a narrated slide show and upload it to YouTube. If you're feeling like killing 5 minutes of time, or have some other masochistic inclination then take a peek. I've resisted the urge to embed the video here for aesthetic reasons...honestly.
