Italian astronaut Luca Parmitano has become the first person to DJ in space

Italian astronaut Luca Parmitano has become the first person to DJ in space.

Far away from the old site the legendary Ibiza club you're probably thinking , Parmitano was in orbit to play tunes from the International Space Station.

His set, part BigCityBeats' World Club Dome (WCD) series, was broadcast satellite to WCD's four-day cruise which was in the Mediterranean Sea near Ibiza at the time.

Footage from the BBC shows Parmitano using a DJ controller to play some intense-sounding trance tunes, before turning upside down and going for the oh-so-familiar "up with your hands" clap. To which those on the ship's dancefloor duly obliged.

And we all thought it was gonna be Jeff Mills to do it first...
