HOUSTON -- NASA announced the winners of its "Original Song Contest"

mission. 

"Sunrise Number 1" by Jorge Otero and the band Stormy Mondays from 
Oviedo, Spain, earned first place. Shuttle Commander Mark Kelly, 
Pilot Greg H. Johnson, Mission Specialists Mike Fincke, Drew Feustel, 
Greg Chamitoff and Roberto Vittori of the European Space Agency will 
hear the song at 5:56 p.m. EDT on May 31 - the day before the crew 
returns to Earth. "Sunrise Number 1" received 787,725 votes, or 49.8 
percent of the total ballots. 

"Dreams You Give" by Brian Plunkett from Halfway, Mo., earned second 
place with 612,959 votes, or 38.8 percent. It will wake the crew at

NASA also released the final tally of submissions to the Space Shuttle 
Program's "Face in Space" campaign for the STS-134 mission. 
Participants submitted 128,940 photos for uplink to Endeavour via the 
Mission Control Center at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston. The 
images will return to Earth through a data transmission, and 
contributors will be able to print certificates verifying their 
photos flew aboard Endeavour. 

More than 7,550 other photos already have been submitted to fly aboard 
the last shuttle mission targeted to launch July 8. Submissions will 
be accepted through the liftoff date. To take part in the STS-135 
Face in Space campaign, visit:
