Models Can Be Astronauts Too: Doutzen Goes To Space

By Vaneza

Okay, so I know that the stereotype associated with models is usually one where they are less intelligent than the average human and only good at not eating while simultaneously working the catwalk, but model (and new mommy) Doutzen Kroes is set to go to space! No, I am not kidding… According Dance4Life, the foundation fighting AIDS, which Kroes is an ambassador for, Kroes will be a passenger on the first Dutch commercial flight to space in the year 2014.

The first 100 commercial flights into space will take place in 2014, with a group of ‘Founder Astronauts’ to get on board including Kroes and DJ Armin van Buuren…sounds like a space party to me! So what does Doutzen have to say about her “out of this world” trip? “My work has literally brought me to the most beautiful places on earth. But apparently nothing is as beautiful as the view of the earth from space. Astronauts who have been lucky enough to have had that experience, say it is life changing. I cannot wait to go…”

Additionally, Dance4Life will be auctioning one ticket off… Don’t you want to travel to space with Doutzen?
