(Space) Rock Music!

Last year, the European Space Agency made history with its Rosetta mission when Rosetta‘s lander touched down on a comet nucleus. Space fans (like me!) celebrated in lots of different ways, and one of the most unique celebrations came from the band Disparition.

What did they do? They took a recording the lander made of the vibrations in the comet’s magnetic field (which was sped up approximately ten thousand times so we could hear it!), slowed it down by 500%…and then created a duet with the comet!

Would it be too terrible of a joke if I said that the resulting music was out of this world?
