Muse Ready To Rock In Space
Muse want to record a song in space.
The 'Knights of Cydonia' hitmakers are keen to travel on Richard Branson's Virgin Galactic commercial intergalactic flight when the scheme takes off, and would use the experiences to add a new dimension to their career.
Frontman Matt Bellamy said: "We're trying to blag a free trip on it [Virgin Galactic]. I'm going to try to convince Richard Branson to let us make a music video or record a song up there. I think that would be cool. Would I be scared? I think I'll be alright."
Matt - whose fiancee Kate Hudson is due to give birth to their first child next month - has previously spoken of his fascination with the moon.
He said: "The crowd in Moscow were probably the most intense we've ever had. They were going mental and they bought me a big telescope. It's a big, real, serious piece. I set it up when I got home and looked at the moon. F**king hell, have you ever looked at the moon through a telescope? It's all mountains and stuff, it's unbelievable."
