At NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, this past summer, sometimes before the start of the work day, interns Philip Lu and Gabriel Apaza played impromptu classical piano concerts on the Steinway in Goddard's Hinners Auditorium, tackling masters such as Liszt, Debussy, Bach, Schubert and Chopin.

Lu is a physics doctoral student at UCLA. Apaza is a rising senior at Michigan State studying computer science and engineering with a math minor.

Both agree that music and mathematics share a commonality of elegance and problem-solving. In this video, they explain how.
