Marillion's soundtrack for space

Marillion's soundtrack for space

Rock band Marillion have a long-standing interest in science and exploration. In particular, guitarist Steve Rothery is fascinated by the images of Earth as seen from the International Space Station. He wrote a piece of music called "Space" some time ago and thought it would make a great accompaniment to video footage taken by astronauts on the Station.

Steve said, "I recorded this about ten years ago but it was never used. Today, my thought was to dedicate it to André Kuipers and all the space station crews past, present and future."

Earlier, Marillion had sent a compilation of their songs up to the Space Station for ESA astronaut André Kuipers and the Expedition 30/31 crew.
