Interstellar Hits

Songs we've sent to space
Jun, 14, 2019

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.

Tomorrow belongs to those who can hear it coming.
