Sia and NASA unite in new music video Floating Through Space

Space science meets pop music with Sia's new music video release with the song Floating Through Space, celebrating Ingenuity - the first aircraft on Mars.


Ingenuity is a robotic helicopter which has been on Mars since 18 February 2021, having arrived on NASA's Perseverance rover. Its name resembles innovative qualities reflected in its design, in being clever, original, and inventive.


Ingenuity will take its first official powered and controlled flight on Mars on 12 April which will be visible to the public via NASA's livestream.


It has been largely unusual to see music mixed with science, particularly mainstream popular music, however, with the help of forward thinking and progressive artists such as Sia, that tides are turning. Watch the music video below, which captures some stunning scenes in space!


Follow the space-inspired lyrics below:


"You made it through another day You made it through another day You did it, let's celebrate, oh, oh Some days you feel you'll break But you made it through another day Yah, you did it, let's celebrate, oh 24-7 and 365 You made another day, made it alive Made another day, made it alive (yah) 24-7 and 365 You made another day, made it alive Made another day, made it alive So today, baby, remember it's okay We're all floating through space (floating through) Today, baby, remember you're okay We're all floating through space (floating through) Floating through, floating through Floating through space (floating through) We're floating through space, we're floating through space We're floating through space (floating through) We are like grains of sand, better to be holding hands Better to be holding hands, oh We are like grains of sand, better to be holding hands Better to be holding hands, yeah 24-7 and 365 You made another day, made it alive Made another day, made it alive (yeah) 24-7 and 365 You made another day, made it alive Made another day, made it alive (yeah) So today, baby, remember it's okay We're all floating through space (floating through) Today, baby, remember you're okay We're all floating through space Ah, ah, ah So today, baby, remember it's okay (yeah, yeah) We're all floating through space (floating through) Today, baby, remember you're okay (yeah, yeah) We're all floating through space (floating through) Floating through, floating through Floating through space (floating through)"
