The Beatles Bug Out

for Deep Space:
Monday, February 4, at 7 pm EST (that’s 4 pm for us left-coasters), NASA will be beaming the song “Across the Universe” straight towards Polaris via its Deep Space Network.  The occasion, or occasions, more correctly, are the 40th anniversaries of both NASA’s Deep Space Network and the Beatles’ recording of that song, also the 50th anniversary of NASA’s founding.
Polaris is 431 light years away from here. Even at 186,000 miles per second, the speed at which the song will be travelling, that’s a long trip.
The Beatles make history again!
NW Limited has far more fitting tributes, for any occasion of your choosing.
Below are some examples of our Beatles series.

 Beatles #38 Back in the USSR  $500


 Beatles #33 Yellow Submarine $500

             
   
          Beatles #39 “Rain”  $400

These pieces began with England’s Royal Mail Beatles Album Cover postage stamps which were issued January 9, 2007 and a first-day-issue postmark, which ensures that these remain an exclusive commodity. Included within is a 45 rpm (songs vary), which is the centerpiece. Frequently, there are pins or other memorabilia added which are from the same era.
These have been extremely popular and yet they are finite. The universe, on the other hand, much less so. NASA invites you to play along, Monday night, but wouldn’t you rather have the ultimate Beatles tribute for yourself?

  2. Think Bob would ever give up that gorgeous thing?
