Houston, We Have a Ringtone

Always happy to accommodate its groupies, NASA has launched a new service on its website - space ringtones.

Neil Armstrong can now announce an e-mail has landed with "One small step for (a) man, one giant leap for mankind," while Apollo 13's Jack Swigert can warn you the bossis calling with "Houston, we have a Problem".

"NASA has been making historic sounds for over 50 years," Jerry Colen, NASA App project manager Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, Calif., said in a statement. "Now we're making some of these memorable sounds easy to find and use."
