30 Seconds To Mars launch their new song in space

Jared Leto's band, 30 Seconds To Mars, launched their brand new single into space earlier today (March 1) in association with Nasa.

The song, aptly entitled 'Up In The Air', went off from Cape Canaveral to the International Space Station in the SpaceX Dragon Cargo Capsule this morning and the Hollywood actor and rock frontman told MTV News that it has been a "mind-blowing experience":

"It was a phenomenal morning; it's been a mind-blowing experience, sending our music up into space, where it's pushing into orbit and going around the earth, that's a pretty amazing thing to think about."

"It seemed impossible; for a moment I played with the idea of a weather balloon, but I had been speaking with Nasa for quite some time about ways to find something creative to do together. And I presented them with this idea and here we are..."

"A core part of what 30 Seconds To Mars is about is dreams... creativity and dreams are one in the same. And so it's inspiring and challenging to try to make the impossible into reality. And this has certainly been an example of that; putting your music into space is no easy feat."
