Hope the aliens like the Beatles.

At 7 p.m. Eastern time on Monday, Feb. 4 NASA will be celebrating the 50th anniversary of its first space mission by sending out to space the Beatles’ song “Across the Universe,” with their huge Deep Space antennas. The song which recorded exactly 40 years ago on Feb. 4, 1968 will be the first ever to be broadcast into space .

The music is being beamed towards the North Star which is 431 lighyears away or 2.5 quadrillion miles.

“Send my love to the aliens,” Paul McCartney told NASA through a Beatles historian. “All the best, Paul.”
