NASA, the US government's National Aeronautics and Space Administration, announced that it will beam the song 'Across the Universe' directly into deep space at 7 p.m. EST on 4 February. The words of this song were inspired by Maharishi and his teachings, when John Lennon and Sir Paul McCartney were in Rishkesh, India studying with Maharishi in 1968. The song contains a beautiful refrain: 'Jai Guru Dev . . . Jai Guru Dev, Jai Guru Dev,' Maharishi's homage to his spiritual Master*.

The transmission over NASA's Deep Space Network will commemorate the 40th anniversary of the day the song was recorded, as well as the 50th anniversary of NASA's founding and the group's beginnings.

The transmission is being aimed at the North Star, which is located 431 light years away from Earth. The song will travel across the universe at a speed of 186,000 miles per second.

* Guru Dev: Maharishi's Master, Shri Guru Dev, His Divinity Brahmananda Saraswati, Jagatguru Shankaracharya of Jyotir Math, Himalayas
