Within Temptation is the internationally known symphonic rock band, founded in the Netherlands in 1996 by vocalist Sharon den Adel and guitarist Robert Westerholt. The band members are interested in all things science-fiction and space-related, and have been following the PromISSe mission of ESA astronaut Andr? Kuipers. When they heard that three of their songs ("Faster", "Mother Earth" and "The Promise") had been included in Andr?'s playlist to be played in space, the band were very excited to support his mission. They helped us to produce this video, recording a special message and dedicating their song "Faster" to Andr?, wishing him a high-speed but safe return later this week.Within Temptation are Sharon den Adel, Robert Westerholt, Stefan Helleblad, Jeroen van Veen, Ruud Jolie, Martijn Spierenburg and Mike Coolen.
