Higher Power in space | Thomas Pesquet & Coldplay


To celebrate the premiere of @Coldplay’s latest single ‘Higher Power’, the band linked up for an extraterrestrial video chat with French ESA astronaut Thomas Pesquet, who is currently on a six-month mission on board the International Space Station. A specially recorded performance of Higher Power – featuring dancing alien holograms – was beamed up to Thomas, who gave the track its very first play on board the Station. The song’s premiere followed a conversation which took in similarities between life on tour and life on the Space Station, how planet Earth looks from space and its fragility; and how Thomas listens to music in microgravity.

  3. Everything he says always turns into such a beautiful life lesson I’m obsessed with him. You can tell how smart he is just by the way he handles all these different interviews, so well spoken and always adapting his speech depending on who he’s talking to. I just love the way he sees the world, every word he speaks is absolutely fascinating I could listen to him talk for hours
