NASA to Beam Beatles’ Song into Space

“Across the Uni­verse” was writ­ten by John Lennon in 1969. On Mon­day, NASA will beam “Across the Uni­verse” lit­er­al­ly across the uni­verse, straight to Polaris, the North Star. Accord­ing to Wired Mag­a­zine, the song trav­el­ing at the speed of light will take 431 years to reach its final des­ti­na­tion, which is a mere 2.5 quadrillion miles away. Lennon must be smil­ing some­where.
