NASA honored the 50th anniversary (today) of Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin’s historic launch into space

NASA honored the 50th anniversary (today) of Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin’s historic launch into space, was to have Jethro Tull frontman Ian Anderson team up with astronaut Cady Coleman for the “first space-Earth flute duet.”  They played part of Bourree, which Anderson and his band played on tour way back in 1969 when the Apollo 11 astronauts were on their moon mission. Video of the duet is here. Enjoy.
