The Alan Parsons Live Project played at the Foro Italico in Rome and Alan dedicated his classic song Eye in the Sky to ESA astronaut Luca Parmitano. He recorded a video message that was sent to International Space Station, on Tuesday, 23 July.
Eye in the Sky is one of Luca’s favourite songs, and on viewing this message, Luca said, “Fantastico!”
Luca Parmitano is the sixth Italian astronaut in space, but he was the first to really go ‘into space’ and leave the protective shell of his spacecraft, when he made two spacewalks a few weeks ago during his Volare mission.
