Wednesday whimsy

To mark the 50th anniversary of the discovery of the structure of DNA, Spanish scientists translated genetic code into musical notation.

The result, a CD called “Genoma Music” is varied and musically pleasing—a sort of New Age expression of what happens when each of the four chemical units of DNA, also known as A, G, T, and C—is translated into a musical note. Thus, C = do, T = re, G = so, and A = la.

Cool! You can find the CD at Genoma Music. You'll hear the music when you go to that page.

Here's a story about Downing Street's "blog"; it's actually a transcript of the daily briefing given by the PM's official spokesman, but it has comment capability!

Want to take a virtual tour of ocean floor thermal vents? Go to Magic Mountain! This one's 150 miles west of Vancouver, BC, not in Southern California.
