West Coast Science Rap B.A.T.T.L.E.S. Enters With A Bang

Tom McFadden’s Brahe’s B.A.T.T.L.E.S. project has dropped two nuggets of video goodness of late, one of which is racing through the interwebs.  A conceptual cousin of the New York City-based Science Genius project, McFadden’s project centers around scientific matters of debate, if not controversy.  First one out of the chute involves the matter of Rosalind Franklin and her under-credited role in developing the model of DNA.

The latest battle focuses on the ‘proper’ status of Pluto.  No word yet on what Neil deGrasse Tyson thinks of it.

For more on the project, consult Tom’s YouTube channel and project blog – Science with Tom. He’s on the Twitter @tomcfad  More videos are coming, and it’s a good thing.
