If you are aware of an interesting new academic paper (that has been published in a peer-reviewed journal or has appeared on the arXiv), a conference talk (at an official professional scientific meeting), an external blog post (by a professional scientist) or a news item (in the mainstream news media), which you think might make an interesting topic for an FQXi blog post, then please contact us at forums@fqxi.org with a link to the original source and a sentence about why you think that the work is worthy of discussion. Please note that we receive many such suggestions and while we endeavour to respond to them, we may not be able to reply to all suggestions.

Please also note that we do not accept unsolicited posts and we cannot review, or open new threads for, unsolicited articles or papers. Requests to review or post such materials will not be answered. If you have your own novel physics theory or model, which you would like to post for further discussion among then FQXi community, then please add them directly to the "Alternative Models of Reality" thread, or to the "Alternative Models of Cosmology" thread. Thank you.

Video Description

Bohemian Gravity! A glorious mash-up of string theory, Queen, one-man a capella, and an Einstein puppet. Genius physics professors love this video for its completely accurate exposition of the world's most complex quantum gravity theory. 2-year-olds love this video for its funny faces, squeaky voices and colourful shirts. If you are somewhere between a 2-year-old and a genius physics professor, this video is for you.

Video Creator Bio

Tim Blais is the creator of A Capella Science: an ongoing online video project that brings together his lifelong loves of groundbreaking science and glorious harmony. A singer and multi-instrumentalist with a master's degree in high-energy theoretical physics, this is literally the first thing Tim as ever felt completely at home doing. He lives in Montreal, Canada with his four roommates, his Einstein puppet and a slew of musical gadgetry.

Hi Tim

Absolutely loved your video. I'm showing it to all my friends, and considering creating a Fan Club for you here in Portugal.

Even if we have different views of reality, your creativity, musicality, design and video production , theatrical and dance capabilities are impressive ... The lyrics!!, please ... I was singing along with you.

Thank you for showing young people that the word physicist is not equivalent to nerd.

[I've noticed that you are "unconfortable" with the infinities. That is the fist step ... foi you to join the upcoming scientific revolution, hehe]

Good luck in the contest.

Teresa

Tim,

Greetings from a fellow Montrealer!

Bohemian Gravity... a classic for the ages... to show the world that physics is fun, it doesn't get any better than this! :)

Keep up the wonderful work you're doing with A Capella Science!

Marc Séguin

Collège de Maisonneuve

P.S. If you have a chance to view, comment and vote on my trilogy of videos entitled "This Is Physics" --- where I try to convey the "fun of physics" by focusing on some of the greatest moments of its history --- it would be quite appreciated. Only one week left to vote!

Beautiful music! Just missing a ukulele (my own favourite instrument as sadly I can't sing.....). The physics in it is literally mind blowing..... I need a lie down... meanwhile...my own video http://www.fqxi.org/community/forum/topic/2136 on "Convection, heat transfer, who cares" is pitched at high school students and may not hurt your brain so much.....any votes would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
