Having a passion for science is a curse for the first eighteen years of a child's life.

Following through with a career in science could land you in place like the tower of Naturalis, where Yeasayer shot their video for “Glass Of The Microscope.” Ruben van Leer, the clip's director, also took the band to the lab of molecular biologist Hans Tanke, where they gaze into swirling galaxies and crystal cities. van Leer has some big ideas about the video's concept; read them over at Wired.
