Jack White's Third Man Records Plan To Make Space History

Jack White

(Classic Rock) Jack White's Third Man Records are planning to play the first-ever LP record in space later this month. The July 30 event is being organized to celebrate the label's seventh anniversary.

And to do it, they've teamed up with engineer Kevin Carrico to design The Icarus Craft - a "space proof" turntable that'll be attached to a high-altitude balloon to send it into orbit.

The device will contain a gold-plated 12-inch master of astrophysicist Carl Sagan's Cosmos speech titled A Glorious Dawn which the label reissued as a 7-inch single in 2009 - they year Third Man Records was formed.

Non-profit organization SATINS - Students And Teachers In Near Space - will also assist the project. Read more here.
