On every Mars morning, the folks at NASA wake up the Mars Curiosity Rover with some good ole’ fashioned music. There were people wondering what that music might be, so in a recent Reddit Q&A session, the crew put out the playlist. Included were songs from Beatles, Wagner, Anthrax, 30 Seconds To Mars, and more. I think this is a really cool idea. Instead of just hitting an ‘On’ button, they ‘wake up’ the rover with good ole’ fashioned music. I just wish that there were a place where people could make their own submissions and NASA would follow through. How cool would it be to have your name and song picked for the Curiosity wake up call?
Check below for the full list of songs!
