Italian company Avio have launched a replica version of Francesco Totti's final Roma No.10 shirt into space. ?

The plan was then endorsed by Totti, thus leaving Avio -- a "worldwide leader in the field of space travel" -- to make it a reality. It's all utterly pointless of course, but you've got to admire the ambition.
