SpaceX Astronauts Wake Up In Space To BLACK SABBATH’s ‘Planet Caravan’

Astronauts Black Sabbath

As previously reported, American astronauts launched into space from American soil for the first time in nine years on Saturday afternoon (May 30th) with SpaceX’s launch of Crew Dragon into orbit.

According to CNN, the astronauts rocked out to AC/DC when headed to the rocket for their monumental launch.

During CNN‘s coverage of the launch, John Berman reported that Behnken and Hurley had listened to AC/DC‘s “Back in Black” as they headed to the rocket that would take them to the International Space Station.

Now, Consequence of Sound reports that on Sunday morning astronauts woke up to BLACK SABBATH classic “Planet Caravan” prior to docking at the International Space Station.

Behnken, in particular, is definitely a heavy metal fan, as he previously woke up to TOOLs “Parabola” during a 2010 Space Shuttle mission.
