Space Ibiza and Elon Musk team up to launch Space, Space
Will Carl Cox be playing at the launch?
In a first for nightlife, it appears Pepe Rosello — the former owner of Space, Ibiza, has signed a deal with Space X founder Elon Musk to build a new venue in space.
Announced in a statement on Space's long-dormant website, organisers announced the collaboration between the storied Playa D'en Bossa venue and the tech billionaire.
The £20 billion venue will orbit around the earth on a structure connected to Musk's already active Starlink system, with guests being able to head up on newly designed Falcon 69 rockets once a week.

Space X has reportedly proposed giving guests "two weeks of astronaut training" as part of the package — despite clubbers only being able to remain on the satellite for seven days.
It's thought the new venue — named Space, Space — will have the capacity for just 100 clubbers, plus two sound engineers, a guy on the lights, two bar staff, the promoter, their friends, the DJ and the DJs +10 guestlist spots.
Space X told reporters a reporter for SPACE Life weekly, that the company is aiming to have the venue operational "before 2030".
Though owner Pepe Rosello is apparently urging Space X and Musk to have the project complete by 2026 — in time for the 10th anniversary of the club's closure.

Musk released the following statement: “SpaceX Falcon team is making excellent progress – aiming for 60 launches this year including the SpaceX Space, Space.”
Fans of the iconic venue had been waiting eagerly for news last year following a series of mysterious billboards all over the White Isle.
Pundits had believed they were alluding to news of a relaunch on the Island, but it appears the venue is instead headed beyond the earth's atmosphere.
