This has nothing to do with space politics… but I can’t help but loving this alternative music video for Coldplay’s “Star Full of Stars”… I think it’s quite lovely and portrays space in an aesthetic, romanticised way, and I am always interested in contemporary portrayals of engagement with outer space (even if the lyrics make questionable sense… ha)
I can’t get the video to embed (not sure why) so the image I have included is a screen shot, and here is the link to
