Galactic Systems wants to work with local musicians to produce educational aerospace-engineering-related songs for students.

Aware of the immense creative talent in New York, Galactic Systems would like to encourage local musicians to write and record songs for the company’s new AerospaceMusic.com project. The company will purchase the songs at various rates depending on length and number of instruments.

AerospaceMusic.com is a tool for learning about aerospace engineering and related scientific fields. The ultimate goal of the project is to inspire students to be excited about learning mathematics and aerospace topics through music. Songs should be family friendly and discuss topics for students of all ages.

The minimum length of the songs should be 1 minute. Songs can be about aerospace or general space topics or math topics related to aerospace or space. Songs already submitted to AerospaceMusic.com have been about instruments onboard spacecraft and specific missions, as well as relevant aerospace engineering definitions. Submissions and questions should be emailed to aerospacemusic(at)galactic-systems.com.

Jamestown, NY musician Chris Bell has already contributed a song called A Half Life Away about Nuclear Fission and David Cassel of Los Angeles has contributed a song entitled Specific Impulse, which is about the measure of efficiency of rocket or jet engines.

This is just one of the many exciting projects Galactic Systems is working on from the company headquarters in downtown Jamestown, NY and continues in the company’s innovative tradition of creativity in science and education.
