Geologists have estimated that the Earth is around 4.54 billion years old, but a lot of us just don't have the time for a real-time recap.

Musician John D Boswell wants to make science more accessible — by setting its stories to original music. His web series, Symphony of Science, is pretty fun, and cuts together footage and sound bytes from science lectures, videos and scientists, such as Neil DeGrasse Tyson, Sir David Attenborough and Carl Sagan.

Boswell's Our Story in 1 Minute puts together footage from a bunch of different videos, including work from David Attenborough and Stephen Hawling, to tell the story of the Earth and life on it, in less time than it takes to make a cup of coffee — all set to original music by Boswell.

If nothing else, it's marvellous fuel for curiosity, so you can see the full list of documentaries on Boswell's YouTube page.
