Space Music: 'I'm Aquarius' by Metronomy


I've been meaning to post this video ever since the good Peter Krahn sent it to me last month. The track comes to us from British electronic group Metronomy and all the cosmic visuals take place under the direction of France's Edouard Salier.

The video perfectly homages some classic sci-fi while creating its own unique thing -- you know, the story of a man who journeys across the stars, then finds a planet ruled by sphinx cats and space goddesses. It's wonderful stuff.


About the Author: Robert Lamb spent his childhood reading books and staring into the woods — first in Newfoundland, Canada and then in rural Tennessee. There was also a long stretch in which he was terrified of alien abduction. He earned a degree in creative writing. He taught high school and then attended journalism school. He wrote for the smallest of small-town newspapers before finally becoming a full-time science writer and podcaster. He’s currently a senior writer at HowStuffWorks and has co-hosted the science podcast Stuff to Blow Your Mind since its inception in 2010. In his spare time, he enjoys traveling with his wife Bonnie, discussing dinosaurs with his son Bastian and crafting the occasional work of fiction.
