Since EDM Has Already Conquered Earth, Skrillex Sent A Satellite Into Space

The star DJ partnered with Google.

May 21, 2015

After revolutionizing the musical landscape, Skrillex has moved on to bigger things: the cosmos. According to Rolling Stone, the DJ launched a satellite—touchingly named for his favorite Aphex Twin song, "Nanou"—into space this year to take pictures. Skrillex is partnering up with Google on a fancy phone case; if you buy the case, you get access to an app, and if you get on the app, you can see Skrillex’s pictures of earth. The EDM star didn’t announce any future plans for further space exploration, but he did hint at a potentially-untapped audience: “What I'm trying to say is, it could be possible that aliens like my music!"
