Those are the very serious thoughts of Muse singer/guitarist Matt Bellamy, who has actually begun strategizing how the band could play in outer space in the near future, according to the trustworthy Guardian who are quoting the less-trustworthy Sun. Step One: Contact Richard Branson, whose space tourism company Virgin Galactic hopes to offer space trips for a few hundred thousand bucks. Step Two: Get the gear beyond the stratosphere. Step Three: Ground control to Major Tom. Lance Bass and Miss Piggy would be proud.
