I worried after my post yesterday that I didn't do enough to explain why we should care about the evolution of the threespine stickleback. As if on cue, my husband pointed out that one of my favorite projects, the Symphony of Science, recently posted a new video of David Attenborough, Carl Sagan and Jane Goodall 'singing' about why evolution matters. It's a fantastic way to spend four minutes of your Friday.
If you like it, and what the Symphony of Science is doing, you can contribute to their effort on their webpage, sign up for their newsletter, or even follow them on Twitter (http://twitter.com/musicalscience). But I can't leave without suggesting that you also check out their video called 'A Glorious Dawn' of Carl Sagan talking about the cosmos. I know less than nothing about the topic, but I've put the music on my iPod and the line 'A morning filled with 400 million suns' never fails to give me goosebumps. It's unbelievably cool.
