Instrumental song about space
Okay, I don't know that it's about space, but I remember the video on MTV and it had spacemen in it, and as I recall the video was dedicated to the Challenger shuttle, to give you a time frame (as if MTV actually playing videos doesn't narrow it down!)

No, no...definitely not that one. It had more of a neo-classical feel to it. Not a dance beat thing at all. It might've been done by a Jean-Paul or Jean-Pierre something or other.

Excerpt from Wikipedia...

Jarre recorded the album "Rendezvous" after being inspired by the sounds of the Elka synthesizer, which he employed on the record liberally. In 1986, NASA and the city of Houston asked him to do a concert to celebrate NASA's 25th anniversary and the city of Houston's 150th anniversary. 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. 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. The Houston concert entered the Guinness Book of Records for the audience of over 1.5 million. During the concert, Houston native Kirk Whalum performed Ron McNair's saxophone part on Ron's Piece. The concert featured giant projections of photographic images and laser patterns onto the buildings of downtown Houston, including a gigantic white screen on the front face of the Texaco Heritage Plaza building, which was under construction at the time. Due to vehicles stopping on the freeway passing the concert venue the freeways had to be closed down for the duration of the concert.
