NASA wants your songs!Hey all you musicians out there!  If you have a space-themed song, or want to write one, NASA wants you to submit it to be played on the last two space shuttle missions as the crew’s wake-up music!

Go here to submit your song:

You have til January 2011.

You can also vote on other songs to be played.

Here is the official notice, from the email that NASA sent me this morning:

If you like music, the space program and are a little nostalgic, NASA has the perfect opportunity for you. For the first time, the public can help choose songs to wake up the astronauts during the last two scheduled space shuttle missions.

Traditionally, the songs played to wake up the astronauts are selected by friends and family of the crews. For the last two scheduled missions, NASA is inviting the public to visit the ” Wakeup Song Contest”  website to select songs from a list of the top 40 previous wakeup calls or to submit original tunes for consideration.

Original songs must have a space theme and be submitted to NASA by 4 p.m. CST on Jan. 10, 2011. The songs will be reviewed by agency officials and the top finalists put to a public vote. The top two songs will be used to wake space shuttle Endeavour’s STS-134 crew. Endeavour’s mission is the last scheduled space shuttle flight. It is targeted to launch on Feb. 26, 2011.

Good luck, songwriters!
