NASA recently commissioned a song for one of its missions (H/T STEMDaily). The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) has been orbiting our moon since 2009, taking readings of the lunar surface. Maybe so so we don’t forget about it, NASA Goddard Space Flight Center wanted a song to capture the inspiration that comes from studying the moon. Ideally the song would also encourage interest in the STEM disciplines (science, technology, engineering and mathematics).
The resulting song, “The Moon and More” was developed by musicians Matt Cusson and Javier Colon (who won the first season of the NBC competition show The Voice). Cusson produced the song, and the two recorded a video with a *space shuttle* for a backdrop (at least for part of the video).
