iPod to be delivered to International Space Station (with your playlist on it)




The European Space Agency plans to send an iPod to the astronauts chillin' aboard the International Space Station this fall. The iPod will be transported via an unmanned spacecraft called the Automated Transfer Vehicle--and there's even a contest to add top-drawer spacetastic playlists onto that very cosmic iPod. If your intergalactic musical taste is up to par, (here's the kicker) and if you reside in one of the participating countries (Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden, or Switzerland), and if you're over 18 years of age...well, then you're eligible. As cool as the whole idea sounds, annoyed sighs and eye-rollings are sure to ensue when the 'nauts uncover the campy, predictable song selection...also disappointed to be deprived of the hot new Beyonce track.
