Video: The ISEE-3 Song

Tim Reyes (ISEE-3 team member): I sought someone to write a song. Local friends pointed to me and I was given a chance to contribute in this way to bring public awareness back to the long-lost spacecraft, ISEE-3.

Lyrics by Tim Reyes (Former NASA employee):

You chose a new path for me and I left them and you behind
Off to see two comets of the Sun, tell us what you find
Send the words out until they reach the Earth to feed our thoughtful minds
A reminder of where we were, what we sought and still to find
ISEE-3 here and you are not far

Send me a command and let's see if I understand
And so you will go back to Arecibo and continue to command
So much has changed since you were not far
Let's go by the Moon, by the Earth, and return to stand above

You are like old but something new, something borrowed and somewhat blue
Closer in, together, made a team to deliver news to you
We were extensions of your fingers, my companions spun and swirled
Spinning at twenty revs per minute I could never see around
But ISEE-3 here and you are not far

Send me a command and let's see if I understand
And so you will go back to Arecibo and continue to command
So much has changed since you were not far
Let's go by the Moon, by the Earth and return to stand above

So much has changed since you were not far
We are not fragmented like continents when you left
Time has stood still for me but my electrics carry on
70s plaid, solar arrays but they keep picking at the sun

Send me a command and let's see if I understand
And so you will go back to Arecibo and command
So much has changed since you were not far
Let's go by the Moon, by the Earth and return to stand above
Yeah let's go by the moon, and return to stand above
