Le Voyage dans la lune (A Trip to the Moon)
Even today, it does, but to a lesser degree.
I remember watching the rocket launches from the late '60's/early '70's on history programs & watching the space shuttles launch on TV in awe of the hard work and smarts that it took to achieve what I saw happening.
One of the things it taught me was that science is wonderful.
This coming week marks the end of the space shuttle program.

So, to mark the end of one mission and (hopefully) the beginning of another, this week's playlist is full of tunes about space, the moon, rocket ships and a flying saucer here or there.
