Vintage NASA Ideas: Boy Band in Space #MusicMonday
Once upon a time, NASA wanted to send a boy band to the International Space Station. Here’s more from MOTHERBOARD:
The band started going to NASA events, including launches. Sometimes they would play; sometimes they would just hang out with astronauts at the afterparty. And Pearlman started telling them they were going to write a song for NASA and they were going to have their band logo on the side of a rocket. And then he told them that NASA wanted them to train to go to space and be the first musicians to perform at the International Space Station.
NASA originally wanted Aerosmith, Pearlman told Bledsoe, but he persuaded them to go in a different direction.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
