Yesterday, we learned that Lady Gaga had secured herself a 2015 Virgin Galactic ticket—and consequently, a chapter in Curiosity Rover’s Burn Book—with plans to become “the first artist to sing in outer space.” Us Weekly reports that the performance will last for one track, and the flight will take place during “the Zero G Colony high-tech musical festival in New Mexico.”
Left with myriad intergalactic-Gaga questions—Are meat costumes kosher in space? What is the best way to affix lobster-head prosthetics in zero gravity? Will Virgin let her customize her space suit into some kind of Muppet-fabulous couture?—we reached out to space expert and Space.com managing editor Tariq Malik. His educated answers to all of our Gaga-goes-to-space questions are below.
