Video - Song used to wake up the crew NASA spacecraft 1997

This song by Moxy Fruvous (Jian Ghomeshi's band) was "used to wake up the crew
of NASA spacecraft STS-85 in 1997".

I like the song.

I had never even heard of the band or the song before Jian Ghomeshi's troubles.

You Will Go To The Moon

At Worldcon in 1998, in Baltimore MD, I gifted the Lunar Resources Company (the Artemis Project) with a CD of "You Will go to the Moon". They had a VR helmet with a 3D lunar lanscape. They spent the rest of the con piping the music of this song into it. :) Jian wrote, on the insert on my replacement copy of the CD "To Wrenn, our Ambassador" :D Ah. Memories.
