NASA Wake Up Calls

Taken from Chronology of Wakeup Calls pdf:

“Groundhog Day’s “I Got You Babe” is a recurring theme for wakeup calls on missions which have been extended an additional two days, with the astronauts having to repeat their deorbit activities each day only to be told that because of bad weather they’re going to go through the same tasks again the next day. For commander Ken Cockrell this was his third mission in a row where he’s stayed in orbit for an additional two days in the hopes of good weather in Florida….

…Excerpts from the movie “Groundhog Day” (including the repeating “I Got You Babe” by Sonny and Cher) which was for the entire crew to commemorate its first day out of quarantine.”

Seems unnecessarily cruel to play references to Groundhog Day in this context, and strangely similar to the plot of Moon

another cruelty inflicted on astronauts has included Vertigo by U2.

On the plus side… in space no one can hear you shirk.
