Music Collaboration of the Year?

OK, so there is some music project out there called N.A.S.A and while I don't know a ton about it, I found this video featuring Tom Waits and Kool Keith together. It may be the coolest thing I've seen and heard all year. The project also has M.I.A. and Karen O from the Yeah Yeah Yeah's contributing. Anyway, this is a little of what I pulled from the MySpace page:

N.A.S.A., and their worldwide debut The Spirit of Apollo, is an ongoing creative collaboration between two lifelong music aficionados, Squeak E. Clean and DJ Zegon, and their friends, friends of friends and musical heroes.

While N.A.S.A. stands for North America/South America and contains a number of superstar artists from both coasts of the U.S., it is about as far from a tension-building geographical showdown as a record can get. Rather, The Spirit of Apollo was born with the righteous goal of bringing people together through music and art, and that is exactly what masterminds Sam Spiegel (Squeak E. Clean) and Ze Gonzales (DJ Zegon) have done.
