Space travelers have an ear for music! Indeed, according to the European Space Agency’s (ESA) Euronews, there are many links between music and space.

Astronauts take their favorite rock music with them to orbit, while musicians on Earth often take inspiration from the stars in their work.

It’s good for morale…and sometimes music in space takes the place of an alarm clock as a wake-up call.

In the past, thanks to the talents of crew members on the International Space Station, passing the guitar to each other has become a musical tradition.

Check out this ESA online video and learn more about the rock…and “role” of music in space.

    Here is a long list of commercial tenefibs derived directly from NASA. Below are some selected specifics that I found interesting.Hmmm okay, let’s see what we have here Computers: The first integrated circuit was built by Texas Instruments, funded by the Apollo program and the Air Force’s Minuteman Missile Project. TI developed it, but NASA was the customer. Is it your contention that if it wasn’t for NASA’s bloated and inefficient budget that we wouldn’t have seen IC developed??????Everything that the government develops can be done by the free-market more efficiently and cheaper. If you don’t believe that you’re really a big-government Rino and you should move over to Dailiy KOS.This is an excellent thread as we see people I’d deemed to be, in fact, liberals (Aye, are you listening) defending big government spending!!!You guys were so easy to expose as hypocrites it’s funny.Reply
