SOURCE: Based on “‘We’re in orbit!’ Rosetta becomes first spacecraft to orbit comet”, CNN, 6 Aug 2014, as used in the post “Rosetta is orbiting a comet right now.”

ABSTRACT: This isn’t *really* a song about a friend’s child. It’s really a song about a probe that spent 10 years and three orbits around the sun to rendezvous with a comet. That’s a long way to go, really, really fast.

I don’t know why, but songs about space missions seem to turn into Afro-pop with me. Go figure. This started basically because a string broke on my guitar and while putting a new one on and tuning it, I did this little two-string figure that sounded like a thing. And now, that thing is this. The rhythm would be good for running, I think. After a comet.

A smidge late, but here it is.
