Crew-3 Astronauts Rock Out During Their Ride to the Pad

Have you ever wondered what astronauts listen to on their way to the launch pad as they prepare to launch on the ride of a lifetime? Riding in one car together are Commander Raja Chari and Pilot Tom Marshburn. Here’s a look at a few songs on their playlist:

  • “Welcome to the Jungle” by Guns N’ Roses
  • “Kickstart My Heart” by Motley Crue
  • “Don’t Stop Me Now” by Queen

The Tesla Model X vehicles carrying Chari, Marshburn, NASA astronaut Kayla Barron, and ESA (European Space Agency) astronaut Matthias Maurer are traveling to the pad in the middle of a convoy that includes support team members and security personnel. Waiting for the crew’s arrival at the launch pad is the Falcon 9 rocket and Crew Dragon Endurance spacecraft that will send the four-member crew to the International Space Station.
