Last Space Shuttle mission + Acadian?

Yesterday morning was the final landing for Space Shuttle program.

Why would I include this under Acadian Heritage News? There is a musician from from Prince Edward Island (now living in Nova Scotia) of Acadian descent whose music made a trip aboard the Shuttle Endeavor in 2009.
At the suggestion of Canadian astronaut Julie Payette, the CD "When we get there" by Lennie Gallant, was brought along for the ride.

The music on the album is sung in English. He has also recorded two CDs in French. If you would like to hear samples of his music, follow the link below.
