Thirty Seconds To Mars Begin Their Mission Into Space
The song, featured on their upcoming fourth album, hitched a ride on the second SpaceX Drag Cargo Capsule, which along with the very first copy of “Up In The Air” is carrying 1,200 pounds of supplies for the space station crew and experiments being conducted aboard the laboratory.
Jared Leto and the rest of his Thirty Seconds To Mars bandmates got a chance to watch the ship blastoff from Cape Canaveral this morning (March 1), tweeting their excitement throughout the launch and posting photos of them in front of the Cape Canaveral sign, along with a snapshot of the band with NASA Commander Mark Kelly.
They later tweeted out a short video of the actual space launch with a bit of their own commentary.
Fans will get a chance to hear the new song on March 18 when the band’s interview with Tom Marshburn, one of the astronauts aboard the space station, is broadcasted live online. Visit the band’s website for more details on where to watch the livestream. “Up In The Air” will be available to buy on March 19.
