NASA Has Confirmed That These Three BTS Songs Will Be Making Their Way To The Moon In 2024

BTS is going from international to interstellar.

On June 3, NASA opened submissions for their #NASAMoonTunes project in celebration of the 50th Anniversary of Apollo 11. These songs will also be added to the playlist of the 6-day voyage to the moon that NASA is preparing for 2024.

The first three songs announced were none other than BTS‘s “Mikrokosmos” and “134340”, and RM‘s “Moonchild”.

There are no more fitting BTS songs for the playlist. “Mikrokosmos” refers to the concept of the human world being a smaller version (or “microcosm”) of the universe at large (or “macrocosm”).

“14340” is the asteroid number assigned to former-planet Pluto, and the lyrics can be interpreted from Pluto’s perspective as a planet that was cast away and stripped of its planetary status.

RM’s solo song “Moonchild” is pretty self-explanitory. In the lyrics RM talks to the figurative “moon children” who can’t embrace the warmth of the sunlight, but rather embrace their flaws and pain while blossoming in the moonlight.

We’re excited to see what other songs are included in NASA’s moon voyage playlist.
