#LadyGaGa To Go to #Space?

I once whined that while science and commercial space make history over and over, Twitter and Facebook trends still followed Justin Beiber and Lady GaGa around like lonely puppies, heralding their every trivial move.  I even quipped that Planetary Resources might get more Twitter coverage if they named a spacecraft after Justin.

Well, someone must have been listening.  I learned today, somewhat belatedly, that Lady Gaga plans to perform in space.  Apparently, someone gave her a ticket to fly with Virgin Galactic in 2015.  While she’s up there she’s going to sing something.

My sarcasm aside, this is clearly a PR stunt and shows that routine access to space might be growing in importance to someone other than just us geeks.  I hope that Congress is listening.

And…just in case your wondering…the answer is yes.  I will be here when she launches, shamelessly trying and get attention by sticking #ladygaga on Tweet again.  ;-)

Justin?  Are you next?

  1. It almost seems fitting given how she seems so out there anyway. :) That said – it would be nice if there were more legit folks interested in space – I agree – I hope Congress is listening also.
