The biggest band in the world today One Direction have released their brand new music video for worldwide smash 'Drag Me Down', with the visuals being filmed in Houston at NASA's Johnson Space Center.

Directed by long-term collaborators Ben and Gabe Turner from Fulwell 73, the filming took place around the NASA T-38 aircraft jets which are used to train astronauts for spaceflight, as well as a specialised aircraft used for high atmosphere research work - the NASA WB-57 High Altitude Research Aircraft.

Each of the boys train to go up to space in different parts of the Space Vehicle Mockup Facility throughout the video, with Liam training inside the International Space Station replica, whilst Louis is seen driving the Space Exploration Vehicle Rover.

Niall meanwhile worked on the Partial Gravity Simulator, and Harry met a human-like robot called Robonaut - a model now aboard the International Space Station.

The group also filmed inside a full-scale replica of the Orion spacecraft - NASA's vehicle in development for crewed missions to deep space.

To-date, 'Drag Me Down' has managed to hit the number one spot on iTunes in 90 countries, with the track also setting new streaming records on Spotify including the highest first-day streams for a single globally, and the highest first-week streams for a single ever in the UK.
