NASA spreads the Beatles Across the Universe

Did anyone else feel the sudden urge to start humming an old familiar tune early Monday night?

Did thoughts of John, Paul, George and Ringo dance through your noggin and make you gaze up at the stars?

Maybe it’s because last night (Feb. 4, 2008) at 7 p.m. Eastern, NASA beamed a version of the Beatles tune “Across the Universe” into outer space aimed at the North Star to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the lads recording the original version and the 50th anniversary of the founding of both the band and the government organization.

To me maybe one of the most interesting points of the whole NASA press release is the quote by Paul McCartney that was included:

“Send my love to the aliens. All the best, Paul.”

One response to “NASA spreads the Beatles Across the Universe

  1. The words from the song -“Nothings gonna change my world” – strikes me profoundly in that just today a Beagle dog barely survived an invasive procedure in a research lab today, where a fine example of the human beings who sent this song on a journey ,through space, coldly maims, tortures and watches the “results” of scientific experiment – upon a helpless victim – a fellow creature of OUR UNIVERSE. The other day, a video hit the Internet and media of a U.S. Marine, in Iraq, hurling an innocent black and white puppy off a cliff, laughing as the puppy’s screamed died away to the distant thud of impact below the cliff. A starving mother dog struggled to give birth in a discarded big-screen TV box, only to see passerbys ignore her desperation at not having any milk for the six new denizens of OUR EARTH, and no one cared or knew as each gasped his/her first and last breath of putrid air from our Dangerous Planet. Disgusting, how Science is so lofty and vain, the least of us, the most vulnerable are betrayed by we highly evolved guardians of Earth.
