Zoroaster, also known as Zarathustra, was the prophet and founder of Zoroastriani s m Though he is often mentioned as a Persian, his birthplace is uncertain. It is now widely thought that he was born in the eastern part of the Iranian Plateau.

Might note that this work is on the "Science Fiction" album because this was used as the theme song of the 1968 film "2001: A Space Oddessy", based on the Arthur C. Clark science fiction novel of the same name.
