In 1986, NASA and the City of Houston asked Jean Michel to perform a special concert to celebrate NASA’s 25th anniversary and the city of Houston’s 150th anniversary, of which the "Rendez-Vous" album was therefore conceived for.
During that concert, astronaut Ronald McNair was to play the saxophone part of Jarre’s piece "Rendez-Vous VI" while in orbit on board the Space Shuttle Challenger. It was to have been the first piece of music recorded in space, for the album, but after the Challenger disaster of January 28 1986, which killed McNair, the piece was recorded with a different saxophonist, retitled "Ron's Piece" and the album dedicated to the seven Challenger astronauts.
