    U2 and NASA, sitting in a tree? The politically conscious rock band and the space travel governing body have teamed up to record a video segment for U2's current 360º tour. NASA says the super impressive video piece shown at U2 concerts helps educate fans and concert attendees about the International Space Station. The astronauts featured in the clip even had the chance to meet the band in Moscow at a show last week. It pays to be an astronaut; you get to meet some of the most famous rock stars on the planet...or off!

    U2 and space education... who'd have thunk it?

    What is your favorite thing about U2? The provocative lyrics? The Edge's riffs? Their partnership with NASA? Bono's ass?
