Moby set to go into space

And he'll be the first pop star to do so

Moby is set to become the first pop star to visit outer space.

The star looks set to make history after booking a seat on via Richard Branson’s ‘Virgin Galactic’ space flight.

After paying out $207,000 for the privilege, Moby has set the date of his outer space flight for sometime in 2010.

Jane’s Addiction guitarist Dave Navarro has also booked on for a later flight, while Robbie Williams has also expressed an interest, reports Undercover.
