Thanks Pandora. and still free !
Sounds like he got some Mozart in him; his style is very similar to Mozart.

Thanks to Andrew Salthouse for comments. Reading the "official" bio, one would not guess that Herschel discovered Uranus. This is like remembering Einstein solely because he loved to play the Bach partitas.
J,M & J, so NOT baroque.
Marvelous sound!
I wish I knew a way to listen to Pandora in my car without having to plug my phone into aux. every time I got into the car. Pandora is the best discovery I have made in some time.

Not just a great astronomer, but one of the greatest of all time--his contribution s to studies of the nebulae and the overall structure of the Milky Way galaxy established his reputation for all time. Although he was an army deserter, his contribution s were so important that the king knighted him. He discovered the planet Uranus with a telescope that he built himself. His sister Caroline became his assistant and performed much of the mathematics and note taking that supported his research.
Hahahahahaha h . . . . love these comments! Muuuuahhhhh! ! !

William Herschel surely deserves a longer biography than the one Pandora has given him.

Wow. It's amazing to think a great astronomer was also a composer. It's kinda like how Mendellsohn was also a watercolor painter. You'd never really guess.

Quite a talented man this guy Herschel
Wow very interesting. I was reading some bits on the NASA homepage about galaxies, then a piece of his music came on Pandora, and I decided to look at his bio. Cool coincidence to find out his passion and expertise in astronomy
William Herschel is better known as one of the most famous astronomers of all time. He discovered the planet Uranus, discovered infrared light, recorded large numbers of celestial objects, discovered several planetary moons, analyzed the motion of the solar system in the galaxy, determined the gravitationa l nature of binary star systems, deduced the shape of the Milky Way Galaxy and coined the word "asteroid" among other distinctions . His sister, Caroline, and his son, John, were also major con
