ECLIPSE IN SPACE  On 10 March 2004, the song was used to wake the Mars probe Opportunity. It was chosen in recognition of the transit of the Martian moon Phobos. This is not the first time Pink Floyd has been played in outer space; Russian cosmonauts took and played an advance copy of Delicate Sound of Thunder aboard Soyuz TM-7, making it (unofficially) the first album played in space. The song was also used at the finale of the 2012 Summer Olympics opening ceremony in London called "And in…

Phobos, one of the two moons of Mars, is a heavily cratered asteroid-like object. It is said to be doomed because it orbits so close to Mars that gravitational tidal forces are dragging it down. It will eventually be shattered by stress caused by these tidal forces. (Viking Orbiter image, 1977)
