Melbourne, Aug 31 (ANI): Alexander Courage's Star Trek Theme Song is leading the way in NASA's space song poll.

NASA is currently running an online poll to let the public choose two wake-up songs to be played to the crew of flight STS-133, due to launch on November 1.

Voters can choose from 40 tracks played to previous NASA crews, including galactic-themed pop songs like Frank Sinatra's recording of 'Fly Me To The Moon' and 'Here Comes The Sun' by The Beatles.

But the most popular choice is the Star Trek theme by Courage with 400,000 votes, reports News.com.au.

On the other hand, its sci-fi flick rival, Theme From Star Wars Trilogy by John Williams, has just 10,000 votes.

The other most voted-for songs offer a peek into the music taste of space nerds, with Steppenwolf's Magic Carpet Ride and Countdown by Rush coming in at number two and three.

STS-133 will be NASA's 113th space shuttle flight.

The crew will travel aboard Discovery to the International Space Station to deliver spare components and install a new module.

Other than letting people choose which songs will be played on flight STS-133, the space agency is calling on songwriters to submit original work for the next flight.

Entrants have until January 10 to submit a song of their creation to be played to the crew of STS-134. (ANI)
