Astronauts on the International Area Station are set tune in to an unique performance of a David Bowie classic.
A cover of Space Curiosity will be beamed up from the Mull of Kintyre music celebration.
It was performed by Slainte Davaar Allstars and recorded on a runway at Machrihanish Airbase, which is aiming to become the UK’s first spaceport.
With the help of Nasa, the efficiency is due to be broadcast to the astronauts as they orbit the earth.
Commander of the International Area Station (ISS) Chris Cassidy and cosmonauts Anatoly Ivanishin and Ivan Vagner have validated they will listen to the transmission on Saturday night, according to the festival’s organiser.

Iain Johnston, of JIG Events, said: “The Mull of Kintyre music festival has actually encouraged individuals to go to Kintyre from all parts of the world since its creation 28 years earlier and we were naturally dissatisfied, like every other event organiser up and down the country, to need to cancel this year.
” Nevertheless, what much better way to turn it into a positive than to take our music interstellar?
” We hope the ISS astronauts enjoy their Scottish welcome simply as much as we enjoyed making it.”
Another performance of Area Oddity was famously recorded onboard the ISS itself by Commander Chris Hadfield in 2013, making history as the first video to be created in space.
At the time, Bowie – who died in 2016 – said it was “possibly the most poignant version of the song ever produced”.
Referencing the video, Mr Johnston said “as far as stage backgrounds go, (Machrihanish Airbase) may not be rather as excellent as Chris Hadfield’s, but it’s still pretty special.”
As well as the transmission into space, the Mull of Kintyre celebration will be broadcasting the video on their Facebook page from 19: 00 on Saturday.
