Bob Geldof To Be The First Rock 'n' Roll Astronaut

    Bob Geldof is going to space, and he is very excited about it. "[I will be] the first rock astronaut space rat," Bob Geldof recently told the BBC. "Elvis may have left the building but Bob Geldof will have left the Planet! Wild! Who would have thought it possible in my lifetime."

    He is a smart man, Sir Geldof. He had $100,000 lying around and decided to spend it on a ticket to space. The Space Expedition Corporation, SXP, will take him and a few other wealthy people and lesser-known celebrities, including the Dutch trance DJ Armin van Buuren, 62 miles above earth's surface. At that altitude, Sir Geldof will still be over 238,000 miles away from the moon. Still, he is the first rock astronaut space rat.

    In my opinion, it is pathetic to live in space-age and not leave the planet. For the super-rich, there is no excuse not to go, now that space tourism exists. So kudos, Sir Geldof. On his way there, he should listen to "Rat Trap," the 1978 hit single by his former band The Boomtown Rats, and remember what it felt like to be poor and trapped in a boring suburb. It would be a fitting homage to the rest of us, who are still struggling to save money for our own space tickets.
