This show was 2nd in the global ambient chart, 2nd in the global electronic chart and 3rd in the global chillout chart.
Anyone who regularly listens to this stream knows that I'm a space dork. I've done countless stargazing mixes, sci-fi mixes, NASA mission mixes, etc. So it should come as no surprise that I would make a mix to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission.
Combining music and NASA mission audio, this mix tracks the journey as it moves from liftoff to orbit to TLI(translunar injection) to landing & walking on the moon then finally returning home.
The titles of the tracks show what is happening in the expedition. Such as Max Richter's "The Escape" as Apollo performs the TLI burn to leave earth orbit and head to the moon. Or the Jane Antonia Cornish tune, "Into Silence," which is heard as the crew goes around the backside of the moon and loses radio contact.
One oddball track is "Lunar Rhapsody" from the album "Music Out Of The Moon" released in 1947. It's in there because Neil Armstrong had it on cassette and listened to it during the trip.
