Luca Parmitano, an Italian astronaut created a new milestone in EDM history. He DJed in space from the International Space Station through a tablet. Parmitano showed off his DJ skills in the zero gravity environment. He played a trance set and even spun upside down.

Parmitano’s set was part of BigCityBeats’ World Club Dome (WCD) series. It was then broadcasted via satellite to WCD’s four-day cruise which was in the Mediterranean Sea near Ibiza at the time.

A video from BBC shows him and passengers on the cruise enjoying this unique set and memorable experience.
