Chopin: The Space Concert
50 years after Yuri Gagarin historical lift-off we started to understand that Space flights pushed forwards not only technology but first of all our spiritual awareness and understanding of our place in the Universe. The message of astronauts, formulated in the universal language of pictures and music of Frédéric Chopin gives an unique chance to share the beauty of Earth with youth around the World. The Cupola is maybe the best place were we could find the right perspective on our place in Time and Space. Like the Hubble telescope, which opened our eyes on distance Galaxies, the Cupola could open our hearts on emotions of astronauts watching our beautiful Earth from the orbit. I am convinced that the opening of the Cupola was that symbolic moment of awakening of the new space awareness, which could lead us to better understanding of our unique place in the Universe.
