Faversham; Bob In Space
Bob Geldof is going into space as a passenger on a commercial flight.
The singer was offered the trip after his band, the Boomtown Rats, agreed to play a concert at a charity ball at the Natural History Museum, London, where seats on the flight will be auctioned off for good causes.
He said: "Being the first Irishman in space is not only a fantastic honour but pretty mind-blowing...The First Rock Astronaut - Space Rat! Elvis may have left the building but Bob Geldof will have left the planet! Wild!
"Who would have thought it possible in my lifetime? I will be joined by a couple of fellow astronauts who will bid to participate in this extraordinary adventure on this amazing night.''
The flights, which are scheduled for 2015, will be auctioned at the high-society event next month along with a diamond-encrusted watch and a car ride with former Formula One drivers.
