Science is Beautiful

A scientist explains how he took issue with the message of a Walt Whitman  poem ("When I Heard the Learn'd Astronomer").  It seemed to be saying science somehow hides beauty.  That led him to try to explain what is beautiful about science.  He got his answer while listening to Janis Joplin.

From the website"He explains why Walt Whitman misunderstood the beauty of the universe, and why Maxwell's Equations are like a sexual experience."
