Space music: An anthem for the Team Indus mission to the Moon

Indian musician Ram Sampath has composed a song dedicated to the Team Indus lunar lander project. The song is performed by Sona Mohapatra and the band Sanam. Read the background story to the TeamIndus anthem.

Team Indus is a finalist in the Google Lunar XPRIZE competition to send the first privately funded lander and rover to the lunar surface. The team has reserved a spot on an Indian PSLV rocket but it’s not clear yet if they can raise sufficient funding to pay for the launch, which must happen before the March 31, 2018 deadline if they are to have a chance to win the GLXP $20M first prize.
