"Glad Gliese" © by Kathleen Martin: mp3 .. lyrics
(tune: "Sad Lisa", by Cat Stevens)
In 2010, astronomers announced the discovery of the planet Gliese 581g, which may have all the conditions needed for life. It has a mass three times that of Earth, and orbits a red dwarf star about 22 light years away. This beautiful song lays out some of the basic facts, and dreams about the possibility of humanity colonizing the planet.
