Kepler Song

Kepler is a space observatory specifically designed to survey a portion of our region of the Milky Way galaxy to discover dozens of Earth-size planets in or near the habitable zone and determine how many of the billions of stars in our galaxy have such planets. The mission was named in honor of German astronomer Johannes Kepler.

Listen to the song.


Like another science fiction novel
curiosity has left me in suspense
Could there ever be another planet like Earth
Could there ever be another you...I doubt it
I keep searchin' for clues that you exist.
One more time around and I think I might have found you baby.

And I gaze
deep inside a our galaxy
to a world I've been imagining
a glimpse of paradise.
Amazing possibilities
Could you be...smiling right back at me
thru this looking glass in time…
A good planet is hard to find.

Like the swirls in the sky of a Van Gogh Masterpiece
I stare in space and swear he traced distant galaxies
Did he close his eyes when he brushed the canvas
Did he think of you and smile when he made the planets
picture perfect cosmic harmony
A starry night reveals your face, I think he might found you baby.

Through Kepler’s eyes I see the light and all the world around me...all the worlds around me
Mesmerized, hypnotized, I call your name and I call your name and feel your warmth surround me
