Beyonce Wakes Up Space Shuttle Astronauts

As the space shuttle Atlantis’ astronauts prepare for another day of heavy lifting today (July 16), the spaceflyers were treated to a special wakeup message from hit R&B artist Beyonce Knowles, as mission controllers on the ground continue to evaluate the cause of a computer glitch that occurred earlier this week.

Atlantis’ four astronauts, who are on an overnight schedule, woke up at 11:29 p.m. EDT to the song “Run the World (Girls)” by Beyonce Knowles. The singer also recorded a special message for the crew.

“Good morning, Atlantis. This is Beyonce,” she said. “Sandy, Chris, Doug and Rex, you inspire all of us to dare to live our dreams, to know that we’re smart enough and strong enough to achieve them. This song is especially for my girl, Sandy, and all the women who’ve taken us to space with them and the girls who are our future explorers.”

“Good morning, Houston,” STS-135 mission specialist Sandy Magnus replied. “A big thanks to Beyonce for taking the time out of her schedule to record us a greeting, and we’re ready for another day here on Atlantis and hopefully we as a team at NASA can keep our inspirational work up for the young people of America.”

So, Beyonce has sung at the inauguration of President Obama, that was obviously huge, but THIS – is out of this world (literally)

You go girl !!
