Justin Bieber Gets Space Gig Invite From NASA: Now Do You Believe?

Page Mackinley

Justin Bieber may currently walk among us, but it seems the pop star's ultimate destiny lies beyond the stars --- and NASA have heard his call.

On Saturday, February 23, the 18-year old superstar posted a tweet expressing his desire to put on a gig in space.

Bieber's one-line tweet read: "I wanna do a concert in space."

Less than 24 hours later, NASA responded via twitter --- naturally --- with a message that suggested they were seriously considering making Bieber's space gig happen, replying:

"Maybe we can help you with that. 'All Around the World,' next off it?"

MTV reports that Bieber is in the UK right now on his "Believe" world tour and is due to perform at London's O2 Arena next week.

NASA, too, have quite a lot going on.

The agency recently confirmed its science contribution to the European Space Agency's (ESA) 2022 JUpiter ICy moons Explorer — or JUICE — spacecraft mission to explore Jupiter's Moons.

Along with 15 other European countries and Japan, NASA has provided a radar capable of deep-searching inside Jupiter's moons once the spacecraft arrives in orbit. The space agency has also stumped for the parts of two other science instruments, Space.com notes.

In addition, NASA also has another spacecraft en route to Jupiter. The Juno spacecraft, which launched in 2011, is expected to arrive in the giant planet's orbit in July 2016.

The purpose of its mission is to study Jupiter's magnetic field and atmosphere.

So who knows, if future talks between NASA and Bieber go well, he and his band could be part of Juno's payload.
