I honestly don’t need a reason to post this, but I have one nonetheless—did you know that NASA has used music to awaken astronauts in space ever since the Apollo Program? Astronauts returning from the moon were serenaded by their colleagues in mission control, and several crews have awoken on their last day in space to Dean Martin’s song “Going Back to Houston.”

On the 12th of February, 2010, the shuttle space crew were awoken with the Ballad of Serenity—the theme song of Firefly.
