Big Head Todd and the Monsters Play for Astronauts
Early this morning Big Head Todd and the Monsters serenaded the crew aboard the space shuttle Discovery. The group performed the song “Blue Sky,” which was written by the band as a tribute for Discovery’s return to flight mission in 2005. “Blue Sky” was selected along with the “Theme from Star Trek” via online voting by the public to wake up the crew. The group performed the song at Houston’s NASA Mission Control Center while the Discovery orbited 220 miles above the southern tip of South America.
