Wake-up call

This morning the astronauts aboard the space shuttle Discovery woke to the music of a group named after two of Kurt Vonnegut’s best-known characters. If only Walter Gesundheit had been there to announce it. The NASA mission update is short on details, but I assume the song that was played, “In a Little While,” is the number from Once Upon a Mattress.  Downloads here if you want to know what Pilgrim and Trout sound like. And let’s hope there isn’t a chrono-synclastic infundibulum coming around the horizon.
