The SWIFT song

Okay, I hope you already are aware that astronomers do not just go out in the night and watch stars. Well, sometimes they do [these reports are in German], but most time they don’t.

While searching for something different today I found that sometimes they even make music, like the SWIFT people (a mission to study the cosmos’ second brightest explosions — after the big bang — gamma ray bursts) who wrote an a-capella song that’s not only scientifcally meaningful but that also sounds good for their satellite!

Dading recently reminded me that there is another great piece of astronomical musical art, the Hotel Mauna Kea song.

Another piece of ‘astronomy & lyrics’ I was pointed at by Ben: The Dark Matter Rap (by David Weinberg). Check it out!
