A tribute to spaceflight, both human and robotic... and to Carl Sagan, it taught us to look up... and dream!


On the human side of my tribute, you'll here the wake up music from two Space Shuttle missions to the International Space Station. In a long standing tradition of NASA, family members or loved ones would pick a couple of songs for each crew member as wake up music for each day of the mission. Also, Walter Cronkite announcing during the landing of Apollo 11.

On the robotic side, two Mars landing. A rare documentary of the Viking 1 landing in 1976 from Jet Propulsion Labs in California including words from some of the greatest SF authors of all time. The other landing is of Mars Curiosity Rover which landed a few years ago.

To finish the show, a set of space themed music of my choice and an excerpt from the Voyager Golden Record which Carl Sagan produced to be placed on the Voyager 1 and 2 spacecraft which explored the outer planets of the Solar System.
