This past Saturday, NASA launched the Mars Science Laboratory known as "Curiosity" on a 9 month journey to the planet Mars. As I was watching video of the launch, I was thinking about music that would work well with a launch & space voyage. I quickly collected some appropriate tune & cranked out this mix at escape velocity speed.

The tracks are all electronic/electronica cuts that I thought seem to fit the theme. As it turns out, many of the tunes have titles that are perfect for a mix like this. Titles such as "Towards Unknown Space", "Solar Sailer", "Born to Fire", "Your Wings Make You Fly" and of course "Phobos & Deimos Go To Mars".

That "Phobos & Deimos" tracks was one of my absolute favorite tracks in college. I had a clear vinyl version of the Synergy album "Cords". There aren't going to be too many times that I can sneak that cut into a mix so I'm glad I got that one in here.

The NASA audio is all from the actual launch of the Curiosity Mars rover mission.
