    The Chainsmokers, an American duo, will be the first band to perform in space. Andrew Taggart and Alex Poll will leave Earth in 2024. Associated Press writes about it.

    The musicians have already signed a contract to participate in one of the first World View flights. They will go into orbit in a small capsule attached to a stratosphere balloon and play a concert.

    “We have always dreamed of going into space and are excited to partner with World View to experience this adventure and experience. We know that the views of Earth and space will be incredible and inspiring, so we hope to use this flight for creativity and future projects,” said Andrew Taggart and Alex Poll. One of their latest hits is called High, so they joked that they had to match.

    World View CEO Ryan Hartman has already said that the super popular The Chainsmokers were chosen to participate in the project in order to interest a young audience in space tourism.

    Hartman also admitted that his son influenced the choice, who really likes the songs of The Chainsmokers.

    But in space, musicians will not be alone. Together with them, at least six more passengers will fly in the capsule. Out of the Earth they will stay from six to twelve hours. The maximum height that the World View ship can reach is 30,480 meters. At this height, there is still no weightlessness, but a person becomes a little lighter. A ticket to a comfortable capsule with all amenities costs about 75 thousand dollars.

    And World View is one of the new private space exploration companies, which also includes Blue Origin, Virgin Galactic and SpaceX. The very idea of ​​flying on high-strength balloons led to the founding of World View. The CEO of World View is the famous Jane Poynter, the founder of Paragon, which creates technologies for working in extreme conditions. She was also on the team of Biosphere 2, an experiment in which the participants of the 1990s lived inside a closed ecosystem simulating a base on Mars. Also on the company's founding team are former astronaut Mark Kelly and Alan Stern, science director of NASA's New Horizons mission to Pluto and chairman of the Commercial Space Flight Federation. And the former astronaut Ron Guerin will be the senior pilot in the first passenger launch of World View.

    And in Russia, the idea of ​​Tom Cruise was taken very seriously and even called it a “space race”, which the Hollywood actor himself did not suspect. In a hurry, actress Yulia Peresild and director Klim Shipenko were sent into space. They filmed about 40 minutes of material that will be included in the film “The Challenge”. To overtake Cruz, Roskosmos completely changed the flight schedule. As a result, two cosmonauts remained on Earth, and one of them, 52-year-old Andrey Babkin, will never fly into space again, and two more, who at that moment worked on the ISS, could not fly home on time.
