Tim Peake made history this week as the first British astronaut to join the International Space Station, and he got one heck of a sendoff during his Tuesday launch.
British hit maker Elton John took to Twitter to wish his fellow "Rocket Man" a good journey.
But John didn't get a prompt reply from Peake. At the time, the astronaut was a little busy traveling through space.
Valid excuse and excellent lyric use — all in one!
Now some on Twitter want to see another rocker get involved in the social media fun, if only for a little "Major Tim" banter.
