If you were asleep in outer space, what song would you want to wake up to? NASA is currently running an online poll to let the public choose two wake-up songs to be played to the crew of flight STS-133, due to launch on November 1, news.com.au reported Tuesday.
Voters can choose from 40 tracks played to previous NASA crews, including galactic-themed pop songs like Frank Sinatra's recording of "Fly Me To The Moon" and "Here Comes The Sun" by The Beatles.
But the most popular choice so far is unlikely to have appeared in any singles charts.
Alexander Courage's "Star Trek Theme Song" is currently leading the way with 400,000 votes. Its sci-fi flick rival, "Theme From Star Wars Trilogy" by John Williams, has just 10,000.
The other most voted-for songs offer a peek into the music taste of space nerds, with Steppenwolf's "Magic Carpet Ride" and "Countdown" by Rush coming in at numbers two and three.
STS-133 will be NASA's 113th space shuttle flight. The crew will travel aboard Discovery to the International Space Station to deliver spare components and install a new module.
