Lady GagaMonsters, mark your calendars for 2015: Lady Gaga will be singing in space!

The "Applause" hitmaker will embark on a space mission with Virgin Galactic flights and is reportedly planning to have vocal training to ensure she can still hit the correct notes in a gravity-free environment. "She has to do a month of vocal training because of the atmosphere," a source said.

Gaga is set to make history by becoming the first celebrity to perform in space. "[This will be] like nothing the world has seen before," the source added.

The 27-year-old star will perform on the third day of the Zero G Colony festival which takes place at Spaceport America in New Mexico approximately six months after the first Virgin Galactic commercial flight, and has taken the necessary precautions to ensure she is protected against the worst possible outcome. "Gaga has taken out a ridiculous life insurance policy!" the insider said.

One of Richard Branson's Virgin Galactic spaceships on Wednesday completed a re-entry technique known as a "feather" configuration for the first time.

The SpaceShipTwo (SS2), known as the VSS Enterprise, has now completed seven solo flights since its December 2009 debut, but Wednesday's was the first that successfully tested out this re-entry procedure.

Virgin Galatic is Branson's commerical spaceflight program, which plans to take the average (albeit wealthy) tourist into space in the next two years.

The VSS Enterprise took off from a California runway this morning at 6:43am Pacific time attached to the WhiteKnight (WK2) carrier aircraft, the VMS Eve. The spaceship was controlled by Pete Siebold and Clint Nichols, test pilots from Scaled Composites, which designed and build the spacecrafts. Mark Stucky, Brian Maisler, and Brandon Inks manned the VMS Eve.
