Yesterday I talked about the potential of synchronized astronaut spacewalking gymnastics (..they did a perfect 9000 degree pirouette with 42.5 twist and 1,200 somersaults to grab the gold!), and now for the entertainment industry.
Pop sensation Lady Gaga is planning to sing a live song in space!
The event is planned to take place during the three day Zero G Colony hi-tech festival at Spaceport America in New Mexico. The festival features world-class entertainment and cutting-edge technology. Entertainment and science all in one location. I can hardly wait for the inevitable reality show to follow: Geeks to the Stars! (copyright by me). The story of the (mis-)adventures of when rocket scientists meet pop stars and the wackiness and weekly challenges faced preparing for spaceflight! Contestants will be judged on their ability to transform each other into a rocket scientist or a pop star. Of course, there has to be the inevitable booting off the show of a pair each week. Now they have to pay me royalties. Bwhahahahaha!
The pop star will be singing (along with her entourage) in a Virgin Galactic spacecraft at dawn of the third day of the festival. Although I jest above (about everything but the royalties, I really want those), the fact of commercial space travel is now a reality. I can’t wait for my turn (Santa promised).
What about you? Would you go into space given the chance?
