A Beatles song is about to be beamed across the universe at a speed of 186,000 miles per second.

The project will be a first, It will be the first time a track has ever been transmitted directly into space, Nasa says.

Across the Universe will be transmitted over the agency's Deep Space Network to mark the 40th anniversary of the song's recording.

It will be aimed at the North Star, Polaris, which is 431 light years away from Earth.

Sir Paul McCartney, in a message to Nasa, said: "Amazing! Well done, Nasa! Send my love to the aliens. All the best, Paul."

Yes, a very appropriate song. The chances of alien life finding it are quite slim though. Will they be Beatle fans anyway? If so they might visit here to buy all their albums :D
