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.
