Monty Python's Galaxy Song ... by Stephen Hawking!

Well, CD 12 is shaping up, but not quite all the contributions are in. In the meantime, there are a couple of tracks I'd like to share that I don't think are going to be on the CD. Space permitting, I was going to add Monty Python's Galaxy Song because I love it and because it so brilliantly sums up some mind-boggling facts about our universe. I love the way that a profound truth from physics about nothing being able to travel faster than the speed of light is added as a seemingly throwaway comment 'and that's the fastest speed there is'. Just yesterday, Pete  H was saying that it was a shame that none of the iconic physicists had done songs about space and time ... well Pete, I present to you now, Stephen Hawking performing the Galaxy Song from Monty Python. Look out for Brian Cox too.
