Interstellar hits: songs we’ve sent to space

Interstellar hits: songs we’ve sent to space

Since the dawn of time, mankind has been curious about life on other planets. In our quest to find other life forms, we’ve sent an array of probes, waves, signals and spacecraft into the unknown. Along with these efforts, we’ve also sent audio recordings and songs into deep space, with the hope that aliens will find them and send back mix tapes of their own.

For this playlist, we’ve compiled songs that have been sent to outer space. From the recent launch of a Tesla car playing David Bowie’s Space Oddity onboard, to the 1970s when NASA created a Golden Record of human sounds and sent it up with the Voyager space probes, these are the tunes that space agencies believe best represent our humanity. We just hope aliens appreciate good music as much as we do.
