Connections of Life, Nature and Universe in Arts and Science

Hi, it’s Harry Silhouetteof-Wolfhowlingonhill. There was a great greenygrey start to Brian Cox’s new BBC life and nature documentary Wonders of Life first episode: What is Life?

Yes, that was the first image of the documentary, as you can see from the 00.01 time. It could have been a long-lost greenygrey world for all I could decipher. And I wasn’t that far off. It was a dragonfly’s eye in an insect greenygrey world; known as a pond by humans.

It would soon metamorphise into a nice bright pretty colourful dragonfly, as Greenygreys can shapeshift; but dragonflies only do it once in their short lives; leaving its greenygrey past (as seen in the image) in the background, and fly out above the plants and water into the sun.

It was a promising start to Wonders of Life, and nice to see Brian did a great grass and shirt greenygrey photo shoot for the series cover shot.

I’d have preferred a wolf pup of course.

How the Universe and Life Works

In a similar vein, Ben Gilliland provided a fantastic introductory summary to how the chemistry and physics of life and space works in the Metro newspaper (March 21st, 2013). It’s also available on his cosmonline blog.

Talking of similar veins, Joel Robinson’s Put Your Hands Up highlights the connections between humanity and nature in his artwork; sometimes using glorious greenygrey; as with these images showcased on the eMORFES website:

Higgs Boson Find Explained in Glorious Greenygrey

Hi, it’s Stephen Wolfing, science correspondent at the Greenygrey. It was very exciting news this week about scientists having found the Higgs boson, which is thought to be the missing link in explaining everything from the Big Bang, and has been nicknamed the God-particle.

Higgs Boson in a Sub-atomic Nutshell

The Higgs boson is the particle that is thought to have provided the mass that helped bind particles together after the Big Bang. This was explained on the BBC by Jonathon Amos.

Greenygrey Version

During a video of Brian Cox (in glorious greenygrey) explaining the relevance of the Higgs boson find on the BBC, we saw a greenygrey explanation of how life on earth started:

In this image taken from the video we can see a green and a grey meeting by chance, and combining into a greenygrey. And that basically explains how life forms in the universe.
