From the band's name to the single's title, Thirty Seconds to Mars' mission to send a song into space makes perfect sense.
The group, fronted by Jared Leto, is sending along the first copy of their new single "Up in the Air" with a SpaceX rocket, MTV reports.
The launch is scheduled to happen at 10:10 a.m. ET on Friday, with the rocket traveling from Cape Canaveral, Florida, to dock at the International Space Station. "Up in the Air," the first single from Thirty Seconds to Mars' upcoming album, will be nestled in a Dragon cargo capsule that'll include more than 1,200 pounds of scientific experiments and equipment.
Fans can watch the launch on NASA's website. Thirty Seconds to Mars will then head down to NASA mission control in Houston to host a live Q&A on their own website with astronaut Tom Marshburn, who's aboard the International Space Station.
The band will play "Up in the Air" for those listening during the March 18 talk, and will release it via digital retailers the following day.

the gent in the center is cute.
Good publicty for the band name. Does the poopcorn come with extra BUTTer? Maybe if we ASSk nicely?
I always make sure to put extra BUTTer on my poopcorn. A free soda poop comes with it too.
this is so boring...1 hr k?
Once when the space station was floating by they were doing number two and pooop chunks fell all over my school. It was awesome.
Oh, your poor janitor. :o
Wish I could have been there for that!
Wish you could have been there too, triumph, and smothered your sorry self under the load of excrement, leaving the rest of us in peace.
Would you like some poopcorn?
Did you try to catch the pieces in your mouth like with snowflakes? I dream of it raining sloppy sludge someday.
Our weather guy always let's us know when we can view the space station when it "floats" by, it's a pretty cool thing to see. I, also, think its cool these guys get to do that. :)
I've seen it pass over my area before. A few years ago on thanksgiving the space shuttle had just left the space station and both were visible to us. They were aligned almost perfectly. Was a pretty cool sight.
sticking too topic is much better..
Proper grammar is even better yet. In that sentence it should be "to" not "too".
Hey Triumph! 1 time when it went by, we could see the shuttle attached to the sp station. It was pretty "low", so it was a great view. I like that kind of stuff! (call me weird...lol)
I saw that one, too, Peace. It was pretty cool. The funny thing is that everyone that you talked to said the same thing afterwards. "It flew directly over me." You could have lived 50 miles apart, but that's the way it appeared to everyone. Space, the final frontier.....
Hey Sadie, "Expression I hate"!
Guess I'm pretty weird like that too since I like it. I actually have a collection of space shuttle mission patches myself.
You do Triumph? Where do you find stuff like that? Got quite a collection? I find the space stuff interesting, myself.
I'm fascinated by that stuff myself. I live out in the country, and there are no lights out here. You get a pretty clear view at night. Not to mention, Peace is always telling me when stuff is happening, and which part of the sky it will be in. I always miss our weatherman, so she keeps me updated. Thanks Peace!
Used to be you could write to NASA asking for one and they'd send one. Dunno if they still do since the shuttle program is over. I have a few large picture frames full of them and hanging on the walls of my trophy room/study.
there are 3 in this picture
What the hell are you 3 talking about: That is the band!!!
I can confirm that this is indeed the band. They're a trio now and from left to right is Tomo, Shannon, and Jared
Nope. Not them.
Definitly not them in the photo.
I think CNN messed up. That doesn't look like the group in the photo. It may be some of their fans but is definitly not the singers
