To infinity and beyond.
Before we share this amazing video with you, here's a quick bit of backstory.
In August, the European Space Agency landed the Rosetta Space Probe on 'Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko' after a ten-year and over 4 billion-mile journey.
Before the probe landed on the surface in November, the ESA shared this audio recording of a 'song' being emitted by the comet, caused by oscillations in the comet's magnetic field.
YouTube musician Andrew Huang, who you may remember from his A-Z of Music Genres, has taken the audio from the comet, and mixed it into this truly beautiful interstellar cover of the Beatles' 'Across The Universe'.
We should reiterate: This song, with the exception of Andrew's voice, is made entirely of sounds FROM A FREAKIN' COMET FOUR BILLION MILES AWAY.
If this doesn't get you excited about space, nothing will.
