30 Seconds to Mars are launching a new single titled "Up in the Air" in space today (March 1). They will be in Florida to watch the launch of the SpaceX cargo mission to the International Space Station. The Falcon 9 rocket carrying a Dragon cargo capsule lifted off at 10:10AM ET from the Space Launch Complex 40 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. Inside the capsule will be 1,2000 pounds of scientific experiments, cargo and a copy of "Up in the Air."
The band will also visit Mission Control Houston for a Q&A with Tom Marshburn, one of the space station astronauts. The question and answer session is slated for March 18 and it will be broadcast online. More details will be made available regarding the Q+A www.thirtysecondstomars.com.
"Up in the Air" will be digitally available for purchase on March 19. It will appear on the band's fourth album, out later this year.
