"Amazing! Well done, NASA! Send my love to the aliens."  

TODAY IS "ACROSS THE UNIVERSE DAY" OMG. I've been waiting for this and now it's here and only hours away akdjfa. I have my record player all ready. I do have the CDs, but I thought, "Ree, let's go classic." Can't stop grinning. :D :D :D :D <--one for each Beatle. Ohhh, Beatles. You make me fangirl.

Okay, okay, so. Basically, NASA is going to transmit the song directly into outer space to celebrate and Beatles fans and radio stations around the world are going to play the song at the same time. It'll be broadcast on some TV channels, but you can also catch it online!

The "Simul-Play" will start at Midnight UK time at the end of Monday February 4th - based on the time zone in the universe that the Beatles were in when they first recorded the song on February 4th 1968.

That means 4pm PST for meeeee. Less than 3hrs, omg. Check what time it's happening for youuuuu!

John and George woulda liked this, I bet. ♥
