Astronomy Goes Pop:Rihanna – Sledgehammer (From The Motion Picture “Star Trek Beyond”)

In the last few years I have noticed that there is a growing interest in all things space. Now it seems like it is even more prevalent in pop music.

Now, I know that sci-fi movies and documentaries have been around a very, very long time. Still I feel like this time it’s getting more popular among people who would not otherwise have any interest in the cosmos.

This is really great for science explorations since it will have greater value to a larger community that would haveĀ the power to help science budgets and maybe feel compelled to protect dark skies around the world.

Thanks Rihanna!
