NASA Wants You To Help Them With Their Space Flight Playlist

June 11, 2019



#NASAMoonTunes Submissions

As NASA explains:

"Music has been interwoven throughout spaceflight history, from pre-launch songs to shuttle wake-up calls to crewmembers playing instruments on the International Space Station. As we celebrate the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11, we’re also preparing to go back to the Moon by 2024, which means astronauts will have a non-stop journey of approximately 3 days each way – the ultimate long-distance travel."

Just like any road trip needs a soundtrack, a spaceflight definitely needs one too! If you were making the trek to the moon, what song would you include in your paylist?


You can submit songs from June 3 – 28. You can hashtag on Twitter #NASAMoonTunes, or submit the form below.

On July 13 and 14, the playlist will air during a live show on NASA’s Third Rock Radio, just a few days prior to the Apollo 11 launch anniversary. Rules here.

Here is the form. 

The website reads: 

In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon landing and our excitement to return to the lunar surface by 2024, we're accepting suggestions for which songs you think belong on our #NASAMoonTunes playlist! A spaceflight to the Moon is about 6 days round trip. If you were an astronaut, tell us a song you would listen to on the journey!
