Astronomer Wants Justin Bieber for Space Tourism Travel

Justin Bieber is one astronomer’s top pick for space travel, because, he says, Justin would boost the suborbital spaceflight industry, huffingtonpost reports.

During a presentation at the 2012 Next-Generation Suborbital Researchers Conference in Palo Alto, California, astronomer Seth Shostak said:

“My suggestion is, be sure to send Justin Bieber on one of these flights early on. If there’s more interest, there are more customers. If there are more customers, there’s more technical development. It’s a positive feedback loop, and obviously that’s good.”

Justin is not the only suitable spaceflight ambassador, Shostak added. Other A-list celebrities, such as Oscar-winning actors, could also help the suborbital industry get off the ground. And some might well be willing; singer Beyonce Knowles and husband Jay-Z, for example, have reportedly toyed with the idea of filming a music video in space aboard a private suborbital vehicle.

    • Justin Bieber

      Ok, Justin has NEVER once ever been to my country, and i dont go around writing letters all over sites that he doesn’t even use. Hes ovbiously not going to be your ”bestfriend” and you think he would like to read that about his girlfriend the one he loves, he can bring whoever he likes. He hates when his so called ”beliebers” are mean to Selena, thats not a true fan. That was mean.

  • Ur mama

    That is cool! I wanted 2 b an astronaut since i was in pre school! It is dangerous tho! But its hella awesome to go in space!

  • Belieber101❤

    That would be awesome!!!!!!!! But it seems sort of like the astronomer is using Justin to have publicity and to make the buissness more know to people!!!!!!! I don’t know just what I was thinking!!!!!!


    nobody better use my baby for anything!!! and certainly not sending him off into space!

  • Marlene

    Omg that would be so awesome if Justin went to space!! But the problem is that..what if he doesn’t make it back???? I would want Justin Bieber to get hurt or anything. I want him to be safe!! Not to be rude or anything but what if he doesn’t make it back alive?? Well I would be soo sad cause Justin is an inspiration to me!! I love him so much that I don’t want anything bad happening to him..and I’m sure none of you Bielbers would want that too. But if he does go to space..I’ll just pray nothing bad happens to him.

    • Ninja Girl

      Nothing bad would happen to you in space! only if the cord went off then,something could happen to him.I’m a belieber but,nothing will happen to him while he’s in space.

    • MaryBieber

      Yep!I Guess all we can do for him is PRAY!

    • Laurasia

      what cord? we’re talking inside a shuttle here not actually outside in space :D

  • Believe❤✨

    It would be cool!!!! :) It has it’s ups and downs.

  • Starla Anderson

    Omg Justin should do that he would have a great time doing that

  • Ninja Girl

    I don’t care if Justin goes up in space.though,it could be dangerous. but,it would be cool to see every planet and the earth!!! ive read in a book that earth is over 3,000,000 yrs old or soomething.maybe even more!!! It’s fun and dangerous at the same time.

    • Laurasia

      hun, he would not see all the planets because it would take a year just to get to mars. The chances that humans will ever even travel to the edge of the solar system…bleh.

      • Ninja Girl

        sounds interesting.

  • Starla Anderson

    Hey Selena if you on here girl omg you, you nailed the song I’m telling you wow you are awesome

    • Starla Anderson

      Selena Gomez I was blowed away

    • Starla Anderson

      When you was small

  • Laurasia

    sounds fun :P

  • gia

  • desireelopez

    tht sound really awesome but dangerous i dont want justin to get hurt. i read a book about earth nd other plants……… this more dangerous 4 18 yrd old boy like justin in space. yea i mean i was smart girl nd how dangerous in space is. i love space nd other plant but it is dangerous

  • Believe

    WTF “ Justin would boost the suborbital spaceflight industry ”???
    The astronauts are carefully selected,Professional training for many years,After assessment,They know their work,they know LIFE are in dangers,
    Justin is a singer, he is boy, he is not an astronaut,
    He did not need to take risks for the aerospace industry
    They just want to use him to advertise, for commercial purposes

    it’s not awesome ,it’s PARANOIA !!!!

  • 1st fan Justin bieber

    IT may be cool but I don’t want Justin to get hurt!forever a beileiber
