The Swift Song
The Swift Song is the theme song of the mission; an upbeat, catchy pop tune which teaches listeners about the math and science behind the elusive gamma ray bursts and the Swift satellite. It's a roller coaster gamma ray ride!
Performed by The Chromatics as part of their AstroCappella educational project: www.astrocappella.com.
