Playing with her guitar, singer-song writer Lansangan appeared on the 43-second promotional video of NASA on the upcoming return of human spaceflight to America after nearly a decade on May 27. NASA shared the video on Youtube last May 12; featuring different space enthusiasts’ preparation for the highly-anticipated event.

Lansangan was ecstatic upon learning about it a few days after the promotional video was launched.

“So NASA just used my face for one of their campaign videos on Youtube. NASA guys, no big deal lang naman,” Lansangan expressed. For someone who has been writing songs about space, a one-second appearance in a video produced by NASA is already a big deal.

“Thankful for every tweet, share, and show of support for me. It’s a big deal for my music to be recognized like this. I live for these magic moments when life feels a little bit larger. Stars align around me and I am but a girl, overwhelmed and constantly marveling,” she said on Twitter last May 20.

Her huge interest in space can be reflected on her works as three of her originals are songs about space. These are “A Song About Space,” “Exploration No. 5,” and “An Opportunity To Go To The Moon.”
