It was "Good Day Sunshine" for the international space station crew Sunday. NASA astronaut Bill McArthur and Russian cosmonaut Valery Tokarev were treated to a live wake-up call of the Beatles classic in a first-ever concert linkup to the space station. On Earth, former Beatle Sir Paul McCartney performed the hit and another song, "English Tea," on Saturday before a cheering crowd in Anaheim as part of his 11-week US tour. The performance was beamed to the space station crew 220 miles (354 kilometers) above the Earth and broadcast on NASA television, which showed live feeds from space. McArthur and Tokarev bobbed up and down and sipped from squeeze pouches through the show, getting a rousing cheer from the audience.
