America the Beautiful rides the Chinese space lab

China may have managed to launch its first space station module flawlessly, but it appeared to flub the soundtrack.

State broadcaster CCTV and the Chinese space agency collaborated on a short video to mark the liftoff of Chinas unmanned Tiangong 1 space lab Thursday night Sept. 29, The Guardian newspaper reports. The 98-second video gives an animated look at the launch and Tiangong 1s mission — all set, puzzlingly, to an instrumental version of “America the Beautiful.”
