Where does the carbon on Earth come from? How does it make its way into all of the diverse life forms on the planet? How does body size affect the properties of an animal? How does evolution work? How do the laws of physics govern life?
My son and I have been watching lots of YouTube science shows and lots of documentaries lately. The most striking one for me has been a five episode series called “The Wonders of Life”. It seamlessly blends biology and chemistry and physics into an easy to understand, beautiful package. I wish this had been around when I was in school!
It also introduced me to my new science crush, Brian Cox. Watching intelligent men being passionate about science is pretty awesome- Neil DeGrasse Tyson has been my science crush for awhile, lol.
