What science can, it does willingly

From deep within curiosity

Through space and time, relativity

Go Apollo, so the people can see


Now with your hands, you've created me

With spirit and opportunity

I'll fly to Mars, braving gravity

Signals command till the task will break me


We're reading back what we couldn't see

We're blind without you

But our common goal will someday kill you

Curiosity... the spirit and opportunity

Repeats with each new rover


Do what you can when controlling me

What should I do? I'm a bit rusty

As time moves forward in this vacancy

Spirit will go, and then you'll replace me


We're reading back what we couldn't see

We're blind without you

But our common goal will someday kill you

Curiosity... the spirit and opportunity

Repeats with each new rover


Decrease the chance of immobility

Enrich me with your curiosity

Exploring worlds that you've never seen

I'll be your drone, till the cycle repeats

nice

I can't help getting a little frustrated about the first sentence of this song.
"Science", isn't a person. So unlike a person, science doesn't have a will and can't really do anything if no one is "using" science, or in other words; is experimenting and making conclusions derived from facts.
So then maybe you mean "What scientist can, they do willingly." Well, i would argue that statement, cause obviously scientist are just humans, and humans can be forced to practice science, i'm not saying it happens a lot, but it can happen. Furthermore there are some scientist who are in it mostly for the money, so those scientist do it willingly, but can not really be trusted to produce accurate analyses. Also I think some fair scientist, don't dare to question certain things, because they are afraid people will not take them serious anymore if they do research about some widely agreed upon subjects.

Thought this would be a Video killed the Radio Star song parody, but this was still good.

Very cool but very sad :')
i really like how the art was done and the song kinda reminds me of one of my most favourite songs, and this is definietely joining it.

quality city ova hee
