OK Go just dropped their most spectacular - and daring - music video yet, “Upside Down & Inside Out.” Filmed in microgravity over many parabolic flights in Russia, “Upside Down & Inside Out” sets a new precedent for what’s possible as artists consider our future in space.

We're an excited non-profit partner in @okgo's new music video dropping Feb. 11. Stay tuned for a special Planetary Radio interview with the band and video reactions from @billnye this week!

OK Go melds art, music and dance with their passion for science. They are celebrated around the world for tech-savvy choreography and unparalleled artistry. Their latest experiment opens the question: what can artists do when they break the bonds of gravity? As we contemplate how humans will expand our existence in space, we often think about issues like survival, energy sources and communications. OK Go urges us to also think about art.

The Planetary Society is proud to be the band’s non-profit group partner as they share behind-the-scenes details about how they realized their zero-G dream. Tune in:

Upside Down & Inside Out: The new OK Go video premiered Thursday through the band’s Facebook page.

The Planetary Society stands with science leaders who advocate S.T.E.A.M. -- expanding S.T.E.M. to  include art among science, technology, engineering and mathematics. We partner with artists who inspire people to explore through the unparalleled power of art, whether visual, musical or movement. Just as space explorers pursue science to change the world, artists expand how we understand the cosmos and our place within it.

Congratulations, Damian, Dan, Tim and Andy!

The Planetary Society salutes you. Your song is rocking at our HQ, in our heads as we plan what’s next.
