To Asteroid 101955 Bennu.

“Space exploration is an inherently creative activity,” said Dante Lauretta, principal investigator for OSIRIS-REx at the University of Arizona, Tucson.
“The sound-music explorations will be stored on the OSIRIS-REx spacecraft, where it will stay in space for millennia.”
The OSIRIS-REx launch window opens on September 3, 2016. The launch period will last for 39 days, with a 30 minute window available each day.
OSIRIS-REx will leave Cape Canaveral, Florida on an Atlas V rocket in the 411 configuration.
Throughout the 39 days the characteristic energy (C3) is fixed at 29.3km2/s2, for a launch vehicle capability of 1955 kg.

In remembrance of Michael J. Drake

Universele roem voor Nederlandse componist/ Universal fame for Dutch composer

Als er buitenaards leven bestaat, is de kans groot dat de muziek van Roland Kuit het eerste is dat zij van onze aarde te horen krijgen. Het werk van de Nederlander mag van NASA de ruimte in.De componist en klankonderzoeker was al wereldberoemd in zijn vakgebied, mogelijk komt hier nu ook universele faam bij. In september vertrekt een sonde naar asteroïde Bennu, waar een chip met zijn muziek wordt achtergelaten. Kuit is van jongs af aan helemaal gek van de ruimte en vindt het helemaal top dat hij dit nu kan combineren met zijn liefde voor elektronische muziek.
