ISS ASTRONAUT AND JETHRO TULL PERFORM FLUTE CONCERT

And NASA says that musical harmony reached new heights. This as astronaut Cady Coleman, circling Earth aboard the International Space Station, and musician Ian Anderson, founder of the rock band Jethro Tull, collaborated for the first space-Earth duet.
Coleman is an amateur flutist. She and Anderson played a portion of the song "Bourree," an arrangement of which Anderson and Jethro Tull performed during their 1969 U.S. tour as Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin stepped on the moon.
Coleman played her part from 220 miles above Earth. Anderson performed his part while on tour in Russia. The two segments were then edited together to form the finished piece.
Coleman and Anderson's performance saluted 50 years of human spaceflight and the anniversary of the first launch of a human to space. Cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin completed that milestone on April 12, 1961. You can see this out of the world flute concert at: http://www.tinyurl.com/3voo5ed (NASA)
