NASA has been waking up astronauts with music since the beginning of the manned space program. Now, they not only want you to pick the music, but also submit your own for STS-134, the last space shuttle mission.
You have to ways to participate in this. The first is to listen to the top 40 played wakeup songs and vote for your favorite. The top two voted songs will be played during the STS-133 mission, which is scheduled to launch on November 1, 2010.
The second one is to submit your own composition by January 10, 2011. The entries will be screened by a NASA panel of expert space DJs or non-expert space nerds. The top selections will be posted on February 8, 2011, and then people would be able to vote them (that massive whisper you are hearing is 4chan users, getting their plan ready). The two top songs will then be played on STS-134.
For the well being of the astronauts and the US space program, I hope David Bowie submits a couple songs.
