Songs by rock luminaries like Metallica, Rush, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, U2 and Tom Petty are all being heavily considered to wake up the crew of the final flight of the space shuttle Discovery when it goes on an 11-day journey in November.
What's all this wackiness about? Well, the songs are part of NASA's Wake-Up Song Contest. The two songs with the most votes will awaken astronauts on the voyage. Vote for your favorites now at SongContest.NASA.gov. Even astronauts and space explorers need good music, so vote.
If you were an astronaut, what songs/bands would you want to wake you up? I think Cannibal Corpse or Naglfar songs should be used as sonic alarm clocks.
