Captain Mal’s Wake-Up Call to the Space Shuttle

On February 12th, NASA decided to wake up the space shuttle Endeavor crew with a little mood music. Specifically, “The Ballad of Serenity,” better known as the theme song to Joss Whedon’s Firefly (it begins at 2:55 in the above video). I’m sure astronaut Bob Behnken and the others would have preferred a sultry space courtesan played by Morena Baccarin, but when you’ve been shot into space, I suppose you take what you can get.
