Our Songs

We've been commissioned to write songs for several NASA missions. We're proud of our 100% mission-success rate! All band members participate in song-writing activities and the group includes two PhD astrophysicists and a former space weather forecaster. In addition to the strictly AstroCappella songs, we write and perform a variety of songs appropriate for tech-savvy audiences covering topics like the science of love, the addiction of the Internet, and the passage of long and short time-scales.

What is AstroCappella 2.0?

How to Order

AstroCappella 2.0 is an expansion of the original, highly-successful astronomy music project by The Chromatics. Our new, multimedia CD plays in a normal audio CD player or in your computer CD drive (MacOS and PC/Windows). The CD/CD-ROM contains:
  • 13 original, astronomically-correct songs spanning the Universe, from the solar system to the edge of space and time;
  • Glossy, full-color 16-page booklet with lyrics and cool pictures;
  • CD-ROM materials including astronomy background information, curriculum notes, lesson plans and activities for each song;
  • Movies, slide shows, Web sites, music videos, and more!

We've added many new songs since our first AstroCappella CD, covering the whole solar system, the habitable zone near the Sun, the Moon, Mars, meteors, comets, asteroids, and extrasolar planets. There's also a new song about the mysterious gamma-ray bursts, the most powerful explosions in the universe!

All AstroCappella songs and materials were created through a partnership of scientists and educators, and are teacher- and classroom-tested. Songs align to the K-12 National Science Standards for physical science, earth and space science, science as inquiry, science and technology, science in personal and social perspective, and history and nature of science.

We hope you continue to enjoy using music to bring the universe into the minds of your students. As always, feedback is very important to us. If you'd like to share your experiences (good and bad) using our materials in your classroom, please get in touch with us.
