Discover Magazine has posted the eight finalists in their contest to see who can describe string theory the best in two minutes or less. The videos represent a pretty wide spectrum of ages and talents, and they’re a lot of fun to watch. The videos done by younger kids actually made me laugh out loud — they’re goofy and earnest, and I bet they’re all super excited to have made the final cut.
I don’t want to influence your vote, but I think my favorite is the rubber ducky entry by Sandy Chase. I’m watching these at 6 in the morning, and my sleepy lump of a brain managed to follow that one the best. But decide for yourself! Click here to watch and vote.
