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.
