Fans were able to decipher the letter-like symbols to reveal the song's title and release date.
"Higher Power" is a song that reached a small keyboard and a bathroom sink in early 2020. Produced by Max Martin who is a true marvel of the universe. Released on Friday, May 7. With love c, g, w & j ».
"Higher Power" debuted in space with a little help from an offline connection. European Space Agency (ESA) French astronaut Tomas Pescé, who is currently on the International Space Station, played a special rendition of the song with dances that included extraterrestrial holograms.
However it is not the first song heard in space. The firsts belong to the classic Christmas "Jingle Bells" entertained by the crew of the Gemini 6A crew of the US space flight in 1965 as part of NASA's Gemini program, Walter Sierra and Thomas Stafford, according to the Book of Records.
Other popular songs played outside of Earth include Elvis Presley's "Heartbreak Hotel" and David Bowie's "Space Oddity".
