    Age 35
    Spiegel previously worked with DJ Zegon on N.A.S.A. (North America/South America) and released The Spirit of Apollo as a duo, but has since taken on the project as a solo endeavor and has been working on his new album expected to be released in early 2015.
    More Details Hide Details Their debut album, The Spirit of Apollo, includes Kanye West, Karen O and Nick Zinner of Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Lykke Li, John Frusciante of Red Hot Chili Peppers, Tom Waits, Nina Persson of The Cardigans, George Clinton, David Byrne, M.I.A., RZA, Method Man, Ghostface Killah, and Ol' Dirty Bastard of Wu-Tang Clan. Such collaborations earned Spiegel the title "Hot Star Magnet" on Rolling Stone's annual "Hot List" in 2008. The album was "a conscious effort by NASA to show how people can be brought together by music and art." The Spirit of Apollo took over five years to create, and some songs required N.A.S.A. to wait up to three years for collaborators' schedules to match. It was finally released on February 17, 2009, and received generally favorable reviews. N.A.S.A.'s music also appears in the video game DJ Hero, in a mash-up with Daft Punk's Da Funk.
