(Gibson) The crew of the space shuttle Endeavour will awaken to the sound of Rush today. A one-minute clip of Rush's "Countdown" (from 1982's Signals) will be beamed from Earth to the shuttle at approximately 6 p.m. EST, according to BraveWords.com.

The song was selected by Mission Specialist Mike Fincke and coincides with Victoria Day in Canada (May 24). You can watch it happen live via NASA TV.

This is the final flight for Endeavour, and the second-to-last scheduled space shuttle flight for NASA. Rush, in the meantime, are still on their Time Machine Tour, which continues Wednesday in London and will wrap up in Seattle in July. more on this story
