We really are living in the future, because we’re about to send a disco ball into orbit for the sake giving everyone on earth something pretty to look at.

New Zealand based, American start-up Rocket Lab (apt name) have built a highly reflective ball that will orbit the Earth every 90-minutes with the sole mission giving everyone a ‘shared experience’. How good!

A big ol’ Disco Ball has been sent to space because why not?

Named the Humanity Star, the ball will be able to track on Rocket lab’s website, so everyone has a good chance seeing it before it comes down in 9-months time.
