That idea Jack talked about four years ago, of playing a record in space.  Has he done it???

If he has, I feel that it's gonna be played in the ISS

That Instagram pic of him with Elon Musk a month or two ago had to have been a hint of this.

If this happens to be the case, it's gonna cost tens of thousands of dollars to send the stuff up there. Then again, TMR is known for spending lots of money to accomplish things.

How much money has Jack donated just to charitable causes that we know of?  In some cases, over $100,000. 

 

If this is just a special edition record of some kind, perhaps the Voyager record, then I'll buy it and go back to waiting for him to get that other project off the ground. But it's hard not to think big with Jack, y'know?

Yeah that's why I was saying the cost would most likely not be an issue. I was also thinking about it being a pressing of the Voyager record. Regardless, I just wish they'd announce it now.

Well this looks groovy. In my dreams it's a record CUT in space, zero g recording direct to disc for maximum fidelity.

From the website of SATINS, the program TMR partnered with--  http://www.satinspro...m/programs.html
 

SATINS (Pronounced sat-ins) is a nonprofit program of manned and unmanned exploration of near space. Students and teachers will first begin by building and sending experiments to altitudes of around 100,000 feet – basically passing through 99.9% of Earth’s atmosphere to the very edge of space working with launch kits provided by our supplier High Altitude Science.

Oh, I've seen it. I wanted to wait for the announcement. It is beyond exciting. When he interviewed Buzz, I knew Jack had space fever but this is a full blown sickness. I am Martian with envy.

Just wanted to make sure you saw that the announcement was posted yesterday. Figured this was something you'd get a kick out of.
