Now Skrillex has his own satellite.

The dance star teamed up with Google to launch a custom-designed balloon satellite named after his dog Nanou from the Nevada desert. The satellite will shoot pictures of Earth from the stratosphere for display on a live wallpaper to accompany a new line of Skrillex-branded Android phone cases.

Once its mission is completed, the satellite will be autographed and given away to a lucky fan at an upcoming contest.

Fans interested in seeing through Nanou's eyes can purchase the limited-edition Skrillex Live case at the Google Store through the end of June. Buyers will also obtain early access to a free OWSLA album from Google Play.
