The Story So Far have just released a new music video for their song “Light Year” in partnership wirh NASA’s Social program — a pairing that not many of us saw coming.

It’s an awe-inspiring video for The Story So Far, including behind the scenes footage from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory one Pasadena, California, culminating with the landing of the Insigt Mars Lander. The video was directed by Miguel Barbosa after he was able to take part in NASA Social’s program, which allows more people to learn of the work that NASA is currently doing.

“It’s part of NASA’s charter that we share our missions and projects with the widest possible audience. News media is great, but only reaches certain segments of the population. Through the NASA Social program, digital creators can apply to come behind the scenes, meet our scientists and engineers, and share their experience with audiences who might not otherwise see or care about the agency’s mission. Miguel stood out by pitching a music video to help tell the story of the InSight mission to Mars in a fresh and creative way” shares NASA Digital and Social Media Supervisor, Stephanie L. Smith.

The Story So Far is gearing up to head over to Japan and Australia for the first time in the Proper Dose album cycle. When they return home, they’ll be hitting up some U.S. festivals, including the recently announced Disrupt Festival.
