Space X astronauts woke up to the sound of Black Sabbath

As reported, Space X astronauts listened to AC/DC during the launch of the rocket. Now, it was revealed that they woke up in the International Space Station to the sound of Black Sabbath. The two were awakened by the song “Planet Caravan” from the 1970 album Paranoid.

They arrived on Sunday (May 31) there. They will remain in the ISS for three months. Before docking at the station the two were woken up in orbit by Sabbath’s tune.

The astronauts

In addition to marking a shift to commercializing space transport for people. With companies selling “trips” to governments or whoever wants to buy the service, the launch is seen as important to regaining America’s prestige in space exploration.

Since 2011, NASA has been paying tens of millions of dollars to Russia for a seat for each of its astronauts to be transported on the Soyuz spacecraft, launched in Kazakhstan.

Astronauts Douglas Hurley and Robert Behnken were chosen to man the mission and travel to the International Space Station (ISS). Behnken and Hurley have been NASA astronauts since 2000 and have been to space twice on space shuttles. They are among the most experienced members of the agency’s staff, according to the BBC. Also have been trained as test pilots (which has been crucial in preparing the new aircraft).

Hurley, 53, has spent 28 days and 11 hours in space, and Behnken, 49, accumulates 29 days and 12 hours, including 37 hours of space walking (outside the vehicle or station).

Both of them have astronaut wives: Behnken is married to oceanographer and aerospace engineer Megan McArthur, who has nearly 13 days of space missions, according to NASA. Hurley is married to former agency astronaut Karen Nyberg, an engineer with 180 days of space missions.
