Band Photo: Kiss (?)

KISS member Ace Frehley, known as the "Spaceman," has launched a project to actually head into outer space to record music. The Ace To Space website has issued the following statement:

"To put the biggest question to rest, YES this is a real venture and we are going to do everything we can to be sure Ace is given the opportunity to take a journey into outer space.

During the last 10 months since we started this venture, our priority has been to establish our mission and do the due diligence to make sure it was even possible. Now that we know it is, our next objective is to make sure Ace is given the opportunity.

We have chosen VH1 to document this mission from the ground up and yesterday, Jeff Olde, VH1 Executive Vice President, Original Programming and Production, was given the latest top secret details regarding this mission."

What's Next?

ahahah that's hilarious! :) to be honest tho, if we're sending a musician into outer space to be inspired and write music.... I want that musician to be a real artist, someone who has an intricate relationship with sound and deeply understands the harmonics between the audiowaves and human emotion. I want this opportunity to be used to inspire a true artist, and I want such an artist to use that inspiration to write music such as has never been conceived before... I want to be able to feel, completely and overwhelmingly, the inspiration they got from being in outer space through the music they write out there.

All luck to him, but I don't think Ace can do that for me.

I don't think its real, cuz i can't find anything else related to this, like, i can't find an "Ace To Space" website. I've also never heard of THIS website before. Someone prove me wrong, cuz I wanna see whatever the truth is.

No sh** bristowe, watch this be the time that by some freak chance interterrestrials make contact with Earth and we are going to have a hasbeen like Ace there to lead the way to our doom. But seriously... this has to be a publicity stunt, a space mission costs a sh*t-ton of money. OR we are going to see a version of that Metalocolypse episode where they went crazy deep under water to record an album. And I gotta say, Ace isn't metal at all anymore... he did a reality TV show for one.

At least it isnt Gene going up...

Alien-"take me to your leader"

Gene-"Not only are you already talking to the most important person on the planet anyway, but I also copyrighted the word "leader", so pony the cash up"

Alien- Cash? what is cash?

Gene- I also copyrighted the word cash, so you owe me twice now.

Lol @ FAN's post..

I think it's cool that Ace is trying to get this done, considering his whole stage persona is based on outer space.. I say congrats to the guy if he pulls it off.
