30 Seconds To Mars launch new single into space

'Up In The Air' is travelling to the International Space Station with thanks to NASA

Earlier today (March 1), the first copy of 'Up In The Air' was launched from Cape Canaveral to the International Space Station in the SpaceX Dragon Cargo Capsule.

The single is set for release on March 19. 30 Seconds To Mars were in Florida to watch the galactic launch of the single, which is being transported by the Falcon 9 rocket, alongside in excess of 1,200 pounds of scientific experiments and cargo.

For more information on the expedition, visit: NASA.gov.

On March 18, 30 Seconds To Mars will visit Mission Control Houston and take part in a Q&A session with Tom Marshburn, one of the astronauts aboard the space station. Read more at http://www.nme.com/news/30-seconds-to-mars/68978#o6WJBMC5qJLaWGLE.99

Actually I support government funding of Mars and extraplanatary missions. On the other hand its time for the government to get out of orbital missions and let it be commercialized with the exception of military payloads..

Mars, in this case, has nothing to do with the planet. It is a corporate produce faux rock (ie pop) band. Some money came out of your pocket to send a copy of their music into space. Apparently they don’t know radio waves already travel there.

AND is one of the primary reasons that Aliens avoid planet Earth.

Meh. Honestly... it won’t take up much room on something that was going anyway.
