Ground Control to … no that’s way too cliché


From the NASA History Office, a pdf list of every known astronaut wake up call song. It begins with Gemini 6 and “Hello Dolly” and includes the morning songs sent to the Spirit and Opportunity rovers on Mars. David Bowie’s “Space Oddity” is listed only twice (and the second is in a medley). Elton John’s “Rocket Man” is listed four times (twice in medleys).
