The National Aeronautics and Space Administration has launched a new campaign as its shuttle program dwindles down - the agency is asking for users to submit suggestions for music that will be officially used as the wakeup song for members of the shuttle crew. NASA is encouraging anyone and everyone to suggest songs to be added to the mission's official track list.
"We're looking forward to hearing which songs the public wants played for us. It's going to be a difficult choice, because there have been so many great songs played over the years," said STS-133 mission commander Steve Lindsey, TG Daily reports.
For Endeavour's STS-134 soundtrack, NASA notes that submissions "must have a space theme". They'll be "reviewed by agency officials and the top finalists put to a public vote".
Mark Kelly, commander of STS-134, said: "Space shuttle crews really enjoy the morning wake-up music. While we don't have the best quality speaker in the space shuttle, it will be interesting to hear what the public comes up with. We are looking forward to it.", Register informs.
