NASA Operates Its Own Online Rock Radio Station

Who knew? The National Aeronautics and Space Administration in the U.S. has been running its own online music radio station for years. It's designed to snare younger listeners and get them interested in science. 

From BGR:

"Third Rock Radio is a radio station that plays rock music. The “third rock” thing is a nod to Earth being the third planet from the Sun. The station plays a variety of rock tunes that often have some casual link to science or space. Basically, if a rock song has “Moon,” “Sky,” or “Rocket” in the title, it’s going to get played.

"The station weaves in science content now and then, with interviews featuring scientists and others in related fields. The playlist of music is all over the map, and you’re just as likely to hear a decades-old tune as you are a recent release. The one thing that links it all together is science, and if I’m being totally honest here it’s not a terrible format."


NASA has a rock radio station, and the promo video is hilariously cringey

I wonder how often they play "She Blinded Me With Science" by Thomas Dolby?
