To her fans, Lady Gaga is already out of this world as a performer, but now she will literally perform out of this world.
The 27-year-old pop star is set to perform the first-ever concert in space as part of Zero G Colony, a three-day music festival, in early 2015.
As they say, everything old is new again. That would be an especially delicious irony if future humans once again become cavemen -- on Mars.
A vision for troglodyte existence put forth by Germany's ZA Architects calls for astronauts to live in caverns under the surface of Mars that would be dug out by solar-powered robots.
