Send Metallica Into Space (Top Story)

Send Metallica Into Space was a top story in August. Here it is again as we recap 2010: You now have the chance to send Metallica into space. Not the actual band, we'll let Gibson fill you in: NASA has announced a new "Wake-up Song Contest" to allow the public to choose just what songs the crew will hear on the final flight of the space shuttle Discovery this November.

While the voting is, unfortunately, limited to a list of 40 previously played songs (so sadly, no "Flight of Icarus" or "Space Oddity"), there are still some intriguing choices available for voters, including Metallica's "Enter Sandman," 3 Doors Down's "Kryptonite," Tom Petty's "Free Fallin" and "Blue Sky" by Big Head Todd. The top two vote-getters will wake up the crew on their 11-day mission.

A second component of the promotion allows aspiring musicians to submit original songs, with the winning entry to be played on the last planned shuttle mission aboard the Endeavor in February. - more on this story
