On 20 July 1969, man first walked on the moon... so here's a stack of songs that will keep you occupied for a six-month stint on the ISS.
A supernova is a star that explodes and suddenly flares up and sends light throughout the cosmos. A bit like Oasis did in 1995, when they released (What's The Story) Morning Glory?
Issued in July 1969, just as man was about to set foot on the moon, this song was initially a flop, but hit Number 1 when it was reissued in 1975. By then, the US and the Soviet Union were collaborating for the first time on a space flight: Apollo-Soyuz.
As far as we can tell, no stars in the night sky are named after the Stone Roses frontman. For shame!
True fact: Saturn is actually the sixth planet from the run in our Solar System.
A black hole is a region of space from which nothing can emerge, not even light. It's also the name of a cheesy 1979 Disney sci-fi flick.
Michael Stipe's lyric concerns the actor and comedian Andy Kaufman, star of the sitcom Taxi. Andy Kaufman never went to the moon. Although, some say he faked his own death, so who knows?
John Lennon's gentle song of universal consciousness has the phrase "Nothing's gonna change my world" as its refrain. Well, not if we do something about Global Warming, eh reader?
"I'll take your brain to another dimension" says the sample in this classic track. Time is sometimes considered to be the fourth dimension.
The Super Furries are from Wales, which is on Earth. Earth doesn't have any rings - Saturn, Jupiter, Neptune and Uranus do, however.
There have been many alleged sightings of aliens on Earth over the past century… all of which are as fleeting, brief and confusing as Jas Mann's pop career.
Tim Wheeler may fancy a girl from the red planet, but he'd need to travel 140 million miles to meet her round her place.
Well, not literally. But a star is a large, remote incandescent body mainly made of hydrogen and helium. If theories are correct, life on Earth sprung from the same elements.
There are many different names for the full moon in different times of the year: harvest moon, hunter's moon, hay moon, wolf moon. There's no Killing Moon, though, Ian McCulloch.
Intergalactic planetary, planetary intergalactic.
As far as we can ascertain, Brandon Flowers has not been into space. YET.
