Why Go Up There?

As I watched the Falcon Heavy successfully pull of its test launch on February 6th, I was spellbound with awe and excitement. I’ve enjoyed sharing the exhilarating human achievement with friends and family in recent days. I can still hardly believe what SpaceX has pulled off and the future they are helping us charter.

I’ve also been randomly connecting with science songs from the 50s and 60s that were part of a 6 LP set called Singing Science. One of the songs is called “Why Go Up There” talking about outer space. I found it particularly fitting for the recent event.

Here, I decided to tie the beautifully animated video of the event with the song in the background.
