In 1913, Karl Reich got a nightingale to hop inside his gramophone and sing its song.

Now, that song is going to the Moon.

#GLXP
“Song of a Nightingale” will soon sit on the surface of the moon, and a bird will speak for the human condition.

Nothing even close +Sean Slattery. Try informing yourself before speaking. Helps to watch them yourself too. They're free to watch, I believe on YouTube last I checked. The subjects tell their own stories much of the time, with informative narration to fill the gaps.

"There is no strife, no prejudice, no national conflict in outer space as yet. Its hazards are hostile to us all. Its conquest deserves the best of all mankind, and its opportunity for peaceful cooperation many never come again. But why, some say, the moon? Why choose this as our goal? And they may well ask why climb the highest mountain? Why, 35 years ago, fly the Atlantic? Why does Rice play Texas?

We choose to go to the moon. We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too."

-John F. Kennedy, 1962

"Jacques Blamont, one of the pioneers of the French space programme, spent half a day in our facility. It was so inspiring. These partnerships will increase our bandwidth in our life beyond the lunar mission." - Rahul Narayan, Team Indus

‪#‎GLXP‬
For the first time ever, a private space venture in India has been contracted to carry a payload to the moon for a global space agency. The venture, Bengaluru-based Team Indus, among the frontrunners in the Google XPrize competition to put a privately funded craft on the moon by December 2017, will carry a new line of state-of-the-art cameras for France's national space agency CNES.
