- From the Then liner notes: "'For Science' is a micro rock opera with a science fiction motif. The part at the end about destroying the universe was a spontaneous and unrehearsed outburst from Mr. Flansburgh."
- On the (She Was A) Hotel Detective EP, the song is listed as "For Science Featuring Lt. Anne Moore." According to Flansburgh, "Anne Moore was a friend of the band the Jickets who we opened for a number of times, so we knew her from those shows. She was game, so we just had her sing the part."
- The punk band Blaster the Rocketboy incorporated lyrics from this song in the outro to their song "Time Machine" from their 1996 album Succulent Space Food for Teething Vampires.
