Beatles Going Across The Universe

(Contact Music) The BEATLES' peace anthem ACROSS THE UNIVERSE has been selected as the first song to be beamed into deep space. The tune will celebrate it's 40th anniversary with a blast-off on Monday (04Feb08).

Experts at US space agency NASA will aim the sonic blast to go further than any orbiting spacecraft. It will reach Polaris (The North Star) in 431 years.

To commemorate the event, NASA bosses have declared 4 February (08) Across The Universe Day, and they are asking the world's Beatles fans to celebrate the historic moment by playing the song at the same time across the globe - more on this story
