Niall Horan Finds His Inner Astronaut At NASA Space Center

Niall Horan took his appreciation for space exploration and interplanetary travel to a new level during a visit to NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas.

In case you haven’t heard, the One Direction boys are currently bringing their unique brand of pop music to folks all across North America. Since it’s very tiring to spend that much time belting out high-energy tunes in front of thousands of adoring fans, sometimes Horan and the gang need to take some time to recoup.

According to The Sun, Niall decided to spend some quality time with the geniuses at NASA’s Johnson Space Center. Not only did Horan get to hang out with some astronauts, he also had an opportunity to shake hands with a robotic spaceman by the name of Robonaut. We’re not sure who we’re more jealous of at the moment: Niall or the robot.

Fortunately for those of us who don’t follow Niall Horan around during his day-to-day activities, someone was kind enough to upload a ton of photos of the singer’s trip to the NASA space center and share them around on Twitter.

Of course, Niall didn’t just pose with robots, astronauts, and high-tech space gear during his visit to the Johnson Space Center. The charismatic singer also took a moment to pose for a photograph with one of his adoring fans. What a guy!

Hanging out with NASA types isn’t the only thing Niall Horan does when he’s looking to unwind from the 1D tour. The Inquisitr previously reported that the singer recently spent some time behind the decks at The Late Late bar in New York earlier this month. Before you ask, yes, we stumbled across some photos of Horan playing DJ.

Are you surprised Niall Horan spent some time doing scientific things at the Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas.
