NASA Moon Tunes: Help Curate NASA’s Next Moon Spaceflight Playlist

You read it right: NASA is crowdsourcing a playlist for its next voyage to the Moon.

The plan is for NASA’s next Moon travel to take place by the year 2024. In preparation for this upcoming adventure and to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch, NASA has asked space and music aficionados to help them curate a playlist that will serve as the soundtrack for this new cosmic expedition.

The Moon Tunes playlist will need to be fairly large, as the round-trip spaceflight to the Moon is estimated to take around six full days. The best part of this is that anyone can contribute to the playlist, with suggestions accepted until June 28th via Twitter, by tweeting the suggested music with the hashtag #NASAMoonTunes, or by filling out a fairly simple form here.

There are some caveats. songs with explicit titles, lyrics and themes will not be accepted, and NASA will only accept tracks that are available on official music platforms (i.e. not your latest unreleased bedroom studio demo).

If your track is selected, you will be able to hear it live on air via NASA’s Third Rock Radio station on July 13 and 14, just a few days prior to the Apollo 11 launch anniversary.
