Neil deGrasse Tyson Stars in New Symphony of Science

Electronic musician John Boswell has just released the 12th installment in his “Symphony of Science” series. Onward to the Edge celebrates the adventure of space exploration and features the auto-tuned voices of astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, particle physicist Brian Cox and planetary scientist Carolyn Porco. It’s a mashup of material from four sources: Tyson’s My Favorite Universe video course, Cox’s BBC series Wonders of the Solar System, a TED talk by Porco and scenes from National Geographic’s A Traveler’s Guide to the Planets.

The “Symphony of Science” grew out of Boswell’s 2009 video, A Glorious Dawn, which stitches together scenes from Carl Sagan’s Cosmos and Stephen Hawking’s Universe and has been viewed over six million times on YouTube. You can download a free digital album of all 12 songs from the series, along with a bonus track, here. H/T BoingBoing
