NASA today (Dec. 12) unveiled a new online radio station dubbed "Third Rock: America's Space Station" in the U.S. space agency's latest bid to spread its space exploration to the American public. The radio station, which launched today, will broadcast new rock, indie and alternative music in a format that is "crafted specifically to speak the language of tech-savvy young adults," NASA officials said in a statement.
The goal, they added, is to showcase NASA's space exploration missions in a novel format for today's youth. The space agency is working with the Houston-based company RFC Media to run the Third Rock radio under a no-cost Space Act Agreement.
