Space travelers have an ear for music! Indeed, according to the European Space Agency’s (ESA) Euronews, there are many links between music and space.

Astronauts take their favorite rock music with them to orbit, while musicians on Earth often take inspiration from the stars in their work.

It’s good for morale…and sometimes music in space takes the place of an alarm clock as a wake-up call.

In the past, thanks to the talents of crew members on the International Space Station, passing the guitar to each other has become a musical tradition.

Check out this ESA online video and learn more about the rock…and “role” of music in space.
