On June 3, Johnson Space Center of National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) made a post on Twitter, stating that they are making a playlist with Third Rock Radio that fits for a lunar journey. The exploitation is about returning and landing on the moon by 2024. They then asked the public to share a song they would like to add in NASA Moon Tunes.

On June 5, the space center noticed that a lot of ARMYs, BTS's official fan club name, left a comment with their song suggestions. In response to the fans' overflowing entries, NASA tweeted, "Wow, there are a lot of @BTS_twt and RM fans! Thanks for the submissions," and revealed the BTS songs they have chosen - "Moonchild," "Mikrokosmos," and "134340."

The track "Moonchild" is a song written by RM or Rap Monster, BTS's leader and main rapper. It was released on October 23, 2018, and is the third track from the mixtape "Mono" of RM. The mixtape contains other six songs.

"Moonchild" talks about how pain is part of our lives and is something that people cannot escape from. This song is for everyone who is experiencing hardships as of this moment, and also shows the growth in Namjoon as an individual.

The second track "Mikrokosmos" is one of the latest singles of the Korean boy band that is from their sixth extended play "Map of the Soul: Persona," which was launched on April 12, 2019. The whole album is based on the book "Jung's Map of the Soul," which shows the theories Carl Jung created for psychology and is inspired by ARMYs.

"Mikrokosmos," on the other hand, is about the members' interest and love for the world and the people around them. The song is about giving courage and ease to those people by talking about this warm attention and praise for all of them.

The single "134340" is included in BTS's studio album "Love Yourself: Tear," which was dropped on May 18, 2018. Based on Korean scientists, the song consists of too many denotations and symbolism related to Pluto. The lyrics of the song express how some can't seem to leave their significant other to whom his or her life once revolved even though the significant other had already removed him or her from their lives, just like Pluto that still orbits the sun in spite of losing its planetary status.

Meanwhile, people can submit more songs through Twitter using the hashtag #NASAMoonTunes. The space center still accepts suggestions until June 28. The playlist will be aired on Third Rock Radio on July 13 and 14.
