Spaced Out!

30 Jul 2005
The crew of the Space Shuttle Discovery had a rock'n'roll wake-up call on their first morning in space - U2!

At 10.39pm yesterday morning, Discovery's bleary-eyed astronauts awoke to the sound of 'Vertigo' blasting through their space pod. It was reportedly a request by Pilot Jim Kelly.

Well, as the song says, 'Turn it up loud, captain!'

(As far as we know this is the first time U2 has been played in space. Unless you know different...)
