The Beatles' Music Played On Mars
During an "Ask Me Anything" session on Reddit, NASA reveales that they use various songs to wake up the Mars Rover Curiosity each morning, including The Beatles, The Doors and Simon and Garfunkel. The playlist of "wake-up-calls" for the Mars Rover was revealed by Eric Blood, who works in surface systems at NASA. The Beatles' "Good Morning Good Morning" has previously been used, as well as The Doors' "Break On Through" and George Harrison's "Got My Mind Set On You". Most recently, the Rover awoke to Frank Sinatra's "Come Fly With Me". Obviously the guys at NASA enjoy a laugh, as they've used the theme from "Star Wars" in the past to wake up the remote-controlled robot. Thanks for the report to Gigwise.com.
