The Chainsmokers to perform at the edge of space
US--Music-The Chainsmokers in Space File - The Chainsmokers arrive at the day one of Maxim Big Game Weekend on Feb. 11, 2022, in Los Angeles. One of The Chainsmokers' latest hits is "High" and they're hoping to live up to their lyrics. The feat would make Taggart and Pall the first musical artists to perform at the edge of space, said Ryan Hartman, chief executive officer at fledgling space tourism company World View, to The Associated Press. “We have always dreamed of going to space and are stoked to collaborate with World View to have this adventure and experience,” said The Chainsmokers in a statement. Each World View balloon capsule is planned to seat eight passengers and reach a peak altitude of 100,000 feet (30,480 meters).wftv.com

(AP Photo/Mark J. Terrill)The Latest on the effects of the coronavirus outbreak on sports around the world:___The NHL’s COVID-19 list is now down to 13 players, marking the second-lowest total since the league first began publishing it on Jan. 13. His addition came the same day four Wild players were removed from the list: Jonas Brodin, Victor Rask, Carson Soucy and Cam Talbot. Los Angeles Kings forward Andreas Athanasiou was also cleared after spending a league-high 21 days on the list. The professional hockey team started in 2013 in the Central Hockey League, helping fill the void after the Ontario Hockey League’s Brampton Battalion moved to North Bay. The New Jersey Devils still lead all NHL teams in both the number of players and the number of combined days on the COVID-19 list.
