Third Man Records takes on The Final Frontier

Third Man Records just posted a teaser video hinting that they will soon boldly go where no record has gone before...the final frontier. The rumor is that they will play a gold vinyl edition of the utterly exquisite Carl Sagan/Melody Sheep song of A Glorious Dawn ft Stephen Hawking. Jack White has been working on a "secret project" for 4 years and talked about this back in 2012 with Interview Magazine in this fascinating convo with Buzz Aldrin
"We have a secret project at Third Man where we want to have the first vinyl record played in outer space. We want to launch a balloon that carries a vinyl record player, and possibly that Carl Sagan record, and figure out a way to drop the needle with all that turbulence up there and ensure that it will still play."
