Smash Mouth will Launch 29th National Space Symposium Opening Ceremony

Written by: developer

The Space Foundation’s annual Space Symposium is noted for its spectacular opening ceremony and dramatic musical performances.

The 2013 opening ceremony, sponsored by Northrop Grumman, will live up to that reputation with a performance by the band Smash Mouth.

Collectively, the band Smash Mouth has sold more than 10 million albums worldwide. Its songs include the number one hits Walkin’ on the Sun and All Star, as well as Then the Morning Comes, Can’t Get Enough Of You Baby and a cover of The Monkees classic I’m a Believer.

The opening ceremony kicks off the 29th National Space Symposium and includes presentation of prestigious awards for technology in education, public outreach, space achievement and space exploration. Details about the Space Symposium, including speakers and agenda, can be found at
