Videos of the day -- songs for space

British band Public Service Broadcasting celebrates early pioneers of space exploration.

Valentina Tereshkova, first woman in space (1963)

Alexei Leonov, first spacewalk (which turned out to be more dangerous than expected)

Thanks to Hackwhackers for making me aware of this band.

Love the videos!
And the music.
The Russians would have sacrificed anything and anybody to be first in the space race.
I did not know this band. They sound very eighties but with a twist. And I really dig the inclusion of real transmissions and the vintage footage. Good find.

Thanks for the nod! Their brand includes sampling old archival footage to complement their instrumentals. Always good to find intelligent life out there!
