As the engines of a rocket ignite, three brave astronauts prepare to make their new home orbiting high above our Earth. The moon passes through our planet’s shadow to become endowed with a mystifying red glow. Icy rocks form the appearance of rings as they surround Saturn like satellites. Far from our civilization, the Curiosity rover traverses the surface of Mars.

Accompanying the stories are classical pieces that include Tchaikovsky’s “Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy”; Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 21 in C Major; and Beethoven’s Pastoral Symphony Mvt One.
