Musical concept by Henoel Grech
Composer Henoel Grech has conceived and written a celebra- tory musical concept for the upcoming space exploration missions, in which the Thales Alenia Space company plays a leading role.
The title of this original and unpublished work will be “Next Space Infinity”: it will be an intense soundtrack to evoke man’s scientific commitment and his constant desire to deepen the exploration of space.
Seven missions to investigate the Infinity of the universe, the compositions of matter, the search for traces of life beyond our biosphere, the definitive conquest of the Moon, the satellite that breathes together with the tides and lives in countless terrestrial cultural expressions. A sound journey also into the infinity of the imagination, an unpublished musical project enriched by the participation of other musicians and singers from all over the world to create a truly unique work of collective ingenuity.
Next Space – Infinity
“Next Space – Infinity”: it will be an original mix of electronic and acoustic styles and arrangements, in which the depths of space, the boundaries of imagination, technology and the future of aero- space science will be distinguished.
An original and unique project that aspires to become a milestone in discography, a collec- tor’s jewel for lovers of music, science and hi- storical events. It will celebrate seven space mis- sions with a creative work published on digital media and on a collector’s vinyl record, in which the songs of the Turin composer will accompany these international projects, creating a state-of- the-art link between the science of the cosmos and emotion of listening.
Man at the center of the future and technology as a means to face “The Journey” in the depths of space, among the unknowns of mat- ter. The Infinity of the Universe will be evoked in the original tracks made by Henoel.
Lunar Gateway’s rendering
The Lunar Portal will be the Cislunar space station located about 380,000 kilometers from Earth, planned by NASA, RKA, ESA and JAXA to be built starting in 2025.The Lunar Gateway is one of the next steps for the return of being human on the Moon and for the first time on other planets of the solar system.
ISS International Orbiting Station
The project was developed by five different space agencies (the US NASA, the Russian RKA, the European ESA and all related space agencies, the Japa- nese JAXA and the Canadian CSA). It is a permanent laboratory in micro- gravity conditions and is very important for space exploration.
Automated mini-space shuttle project under development at the European Space Agency, funded mainly by Italy, to test new technologies in flight.
The manned spacecraft, currently being developed by NASA in colla- bora- tion with ESA, will bring the next humans to the moon and will be deployed on future long-term missions.
Mission designed for the exploration of the planet Mars using robotic pro- bes developed by the European Space Agency (ESA) and the Russian Space Agency (RKA). From a scientific point of view, this is a very ambi- tious challenge: to find evidence of the existence of life forms, today or in the past.
Mars Sample Return
It is part of ESA’s long-term program for the exploration of the solar sy- stem in collaboration with NASA and will allow the first samples of Martian material to be brought to Earth for analysis.
ESA space mission for astronomy and astrophysics which aims to inve- sti- gate the nature of dark matter and dark energy: they are both my- sterious and unknown in nature but they control the past, present and future evolu- tion of the Universe.
