This music was inspired by NASA’s New Horizons interplanetary space probe, its recent historic encounter with Pluto, and the excitement and optimism that brings. I couldn’t help but notice the resemblance between the suits the Johns Hopkins engineers wore while working on the spacecraft, and those of the doctors and nurses fighting Ebola in West Africa. While reaching into the universe and beyond is absolutely wonderful and vital, it makes one wonder how we can launch a spacecraft three billion miles into space, while thousands of people die from preventable diseases because generating vaccines for poor people is not a priority.
