NEW YORK CITY, NY, UNITED STATES, March 9, 2021 / -- On Sunday, March 14th, 2021, Einstein’s birthday, Genius 100 Foundation (G100) will announce their newest G100 Visionary, Astronaut Dr. Soichi Noguchi.

This is a very special occasion for Genius 100 Foundation, as the organizations founding was inspired by Einstein.

Astronaut Soichi Noguchi of JAXA (Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency), with fellow astronauts Michael Hopkins, Shannon Walker, and Victor Glover of NASA make-up the NASA Space-X Crew Dragon "Resilience" currently on a six-month science mission on the International Space Station.

Dr. Noguchi is a long-standing member of the G100 community. He deserves much of the credit for orchestrating the printing of Genius: 100 Visions of the Future, noted as the world's first ever 3D book. Through his extraordinary efforts, its initial prototype was produced at the International Space Station in collaboration with NASA, JAXA, and ESA (European Space Agency).

In 2019, Dr. Noguchi was on hand to inaugurate fellow G100 Visionary Maestro Eduardo Marturet of The Miami Symphony Orchestra (MISO). And on March 14th, the Maestro is returning the honor.

“Performing my own music, composed just for this occasion, for the induction of my friend and someone I so admire, Soichi Noguchi to G100 while he's in space, is something that happens once-in-a-lifetime. For myself and on behalf of The Miami Symphony, we are more than honored to be part of this.” Maestro Eduardo Marturet

In honor of Dr. Noguchi, MISO will perform “Planet 9", an exclusively composed piece by conductor and G100 Visionary Maestro Eduardo Marturet, featuring concertmaster Daniel Andai and G100 Visionary, electric guitarist Konstantin Batygin.
