What a cool wake-up call!  As if floating miles above the Earth on the last space shuttle mission wasn’t enough, the crew of Atlantis awoke this morning to a song and message from Sir Paul McCartney.

Paul McCartney and Beatles favorite “Good Day Sunshine” greet the Atlantis crew of Chris Ferguson, Doug Hurley, Sandy Magnus and Rex Walheim first thing on Flight Day 8. Sir Paul and the Beatles’ music have awakened a dozen past shuttle crews. “Good Day Sunshine” was played for two Discovery crews of STS-121 and STS-128.

Sir Paul even adds his own little message at the end of the video and crew responds saying that it was much appreciated.  Pretty cool!

Check out this funny clip from last night’s, “The Daily Show”, where Jon Oliver watches the final launch for Atlantis and interviews former Apollo 13 astronaut Jim Lovell about the future of NASA’s space program. By the way, Tom Hanks also makes a little cameo at the end.
