It may not quite reach the red planet, but 30 Seconds to Mars are about to make their debut in the realm of outer space. The band’s new single ‘Up in the Air’ will actually be launched into orbit on Friday (March 1) to eventually reach its destination of the International Space Station.

‘Up in the Air’ is the first single from 30 Seconds to Mars’ as-yet-untitled fourth album, which will see a 2013 release. The band has built a reputation for pushing the boundaries of what an act is capable of, setting a Guinness World Record for Most Shows Played During a Single Album Cycle, racking up a total of 311 shows in nearly 60 countries on six continents over a period of two years while supporting their 2009 full-length, ‘This Is War.’

As if the band’s previous accomplishments weren’t epic enough, including over 5 million albums sold worldwide, this next astronomical event will take place on March 1 at 10:10 AM ET as ‘Up in the Air’ is rocketed into outer space. The very first copy of ‘Up in the Air’ will be part of a SpaceX cargo mission carrying over 1,200 pounds of scientific equipment and another miscellaneous gear needed to aid astronauts within the International Space Station.

Fans will be able to watch the launch live thanks to NASA, who also offer full details and updates on the mission via their official website. 30 Seconds to Mars will also meet with Tom Marshburn, one of the astronauts currently aboard the space station, on March 18. The chat will also be broadcast online, with specific details soon to be announced on 30 Seconds to Mars’ website.

‘Up in the Air’ will make its Planet Earth debut on March 19.
