Case in example is the wonderful scientific interpretation of the Gayatri Mantra by Shyam Sundar. Such a gem.
As man progresses, the science and spirituality will just converge into something of mass appeal and will ultimately lead to the Nostradamusque peace of a thousand years.

*Om bhur bhuvah swah*
*Tat savitur varenyam*
*Bhargo devasya dheemahi*
*Dhiyo yo nah prachodayat*
Gayatri mantra has been bestowed the greatest importance in Vedic dharma.This mantra has also been termed as Savitri and Ved-Mata, the mother of the Vedas. The literal meaning of the mantra is:
O God! You are Omnipresent, Omnipotent and Almighty. You are all Light.
You are all Knowledge and Bliss. You are Destroyer of fear, You are Creator of this Universe, You are the Greatest of all. We bow and meditate uponyYour light. You guide our intellect in the right direction.
The mantra, however, has a great scientific importance too, which somehow got lost in the literary tradition.The modern astrophysics and astronomy tell us that our Galaxy called MilkyWay or Akash-Ganga contains approximately 100,000 million of stars. Each star is like our sun having its own planet system. We know that the moon moves round the earth and the earth moves round the sun along with the moon. All planets move around the sun.
