Bob Geldof has just confirmed that he will be travelling into space as one of the first ever Space XC astronauts during 2014.
According to Sir Bob Geldof:-
"Being the 'First Irishman in Space' is not only a fantastic honour but pretty mind-blowing The First Rock Astronaut Space Rat! Elvis may have left the building but Bob Geldof will have left the Planet! Wild! Who would have thought it possible in my lifetime".
Sir Bob will be undertaking his first step of training in the space flight simulator based in Holland this coming weekend.
