International Space Orchestra
International Space Orchestra recently held a performance in front of the National Full-Scale Aerodynamic Complex at Moffett Field, Calif. The world’s first “space orchestra” is comprised entirely of Ames scientists, engineers, administrative professionals and other members of the Ames community helping bring the excitement of space exploration to music. Also performing in the orchestra are employees from Singularity University, the International Space University and the SETI Institute. The International Space Orchestra is founded and directed by Nelly Ben Hayoun. As part of Ames’ educational outreach activities, the International Space Orchestra merges science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) with the universal language of music and the arts, while opening new doors for the science community to communicate with the public.
