NASA & U2 create video to celebrate year-long collaboration

Full Article Here // Excerpt Below


NASA and U2 have released a 14-minute commemorative video clip - highlighting a year’s worth of collaboration both in space and the U2 360 Tour. 

U2 approached NASA with an idea to include a dialogue between themselves and the crew of the International Space Station in the U2 360 show. NASA astronauts spoke with U2 several times before recording a video segment that U2 incorporated into their concert.

'Working with U2 is atypical for NASA,' said Bill Gerstenmaier, NASA's associate administrator for Space Operations. 'By combining their world tour with the space station's out-of-this-world mission, more people - and different people than our normal target audiences - learned about the International Space Station and the important work we are doing in orbit.'
