NASA Beams Beatles' "Across the Universe" Into Space. Sweet. Not really a surprise though. I mean, who else are they gonna choose really? Rolling Stones? Madonna? Elvis? No offense but we want to make a good impression to the rest of the universe. lol
And it really shows the average age of those in charge over there!
Of course, the whole world has been transmitting all our music (and speeches and tv and radio talk shows and news and cell phone conversations and CB radio conversations, etc) all across the universe for years. That's kinda the point of all these transmissions we send to ourselves... they point everywhere pretty much, even into space. I guess it's nice to send a slightly more cleaned up signal once in a while.
