BTS songs have made into NASA's 2024 voyage to moon playlist

After achieving global success, it looks like uber-popular K-Pop group BTS will be heading to the moon next, at least a few of the seven-member band’s songs will accomplish that astronomical feat. According to Koreaboo, three of the South Korean music outfit’s hit tunes have been included in a special playlist for a six-day voyage to the moon. The United States of America’s National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is preparing for in 2024 moon mission.

NASA apparently issued an open call for song submissions early last week for its #NASAMoonTunes project in conjunction with the 50th-anniversary celebration of the historical Apollo 11 spaceflight. Apollo 11 spaceflight landed the first two people, Commander Neil Armstrong and lunar module pilot Buzz Aldrin, on the Moon.

A tweet from NASA’s Johnson Space Centre (JSC) Twitter account read: 50 years ago, NASA was preparing to land humans on the Moon. Now, we’re getting ready to return by 2024. In honour of the #Apollo50th anniversary, we’re making a playlist fit for a lunar journey with @ThirdRockRadio. Till June 28, share a song you’d include with #NASAMoonTunes!

Space Station and the Orion spacecraft, as well as the home of the Mission Control Centre and NASA astronaut corps, then posted the following entry that went: Wow, there are a lot of @BTS_twt & RM fans! Thanks for the submissions – we’ll add Moonchild, Mikrokosmos & 134340 to the playlist! What other songs can we include on #NASAMoonTunes?

The tune’s lyrics could be interpreted from Pluto’s perspective as a heavenly body that was cast away and stripped of its planetary status. Moonchild is BTS bandleader RM’s solo song and the lyrics poetically address the figurative moon children who can’t embrace the warmth of the sunlight and instead should positively accept their flaws and pain as they blossom in the moonlight. 14340 is the asteroid number assigned to former-planet Pluto.

NASA also revealed that after accepting song submissions till June 28, it will officially launch its new Moon Tunes playlist during a live show on its Third Rock Radio on July 13 and 14.
