To infinity and beyond – Lady Gaga will be the first artist ever to perform a concert in outer space, the entertainment industry announced earlier this week.
It shouldn’t surprise us that the woman who wore dress made entirely of meat to the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards and refers to her devoted fans as “Little Monsters” would strive for such a milestone. The performance will consist of one song as part of the 2015 Zero G Colony Galactic Music Experience Festival in New Mexico.
Although dates have yet to be confirmed, Lady Gaga will need to undergo an additional month of special vocal training to prepare. She’ll also be bringing her entourage aboard Virgin Galactic’s SpaceShipTwo.
NBC also just announced that they’ll be broadcasting SpaceShipTwo’s inaugural voyage, with Richard Branson and his children, Holly and Sam. The network will also broadcast a television series called “Space Race,” produced by “Survivor” mastermind Mark Burnett.
The aircraft has room for six passengers and two pilots. The flight begins will SpaceShipTwo is hooked up to a mothership called WhiteKnightTwo. After being carried to an altitude of 50,000 feet, the rocket plane is dropped from the mothership, and the pilots light up the hybrid rocket engine for ascent.
Worried about safety? SpaceShipTwo has been in development since 2004 and is currently undergoing testing at California’s Air and Space Port. If 63-year-old Branson worth about $4.6 billion is willing to risk his neck, then we are too.
Celebrities like Ashton Kutcher, Leonardo DiCaprio and Justin Bieber have already signed up. Virgin Galactic has collected nearly $80 million in deposits from about 680 people wanting to go to space. The going rate for a seat in space is currently $250,000.
