In 2008 NASA decided to send one of the heights of modern art — The Beatles’ 1969 track “Across the Universe” — into the cosmos. And for 2013, one of the pillars of internet folk art is preparing for takeoff: An Formula 1 animated GIF is about to be sent into space for the 2nd time. The message will be beamed over a giant radio dish in California tomorrow as part of the inaugural transmission of Lone Signal, a project that’s hoping to communicate with extraterrestrials.
