It sounds like the mediocre plot to a corny sci-fi movie but it's very much real. Jack Whiteand his Third Man Records label will make an attempt to be the first to play a vinyl record in space this weekend to celebrate the label's 7th anniversary.

This Saturday, they're hoping that Carl Sagan's A Glorious Dawn, (a spoken word collage of narration from Cosmos that Third Man originally released on 7) will be the first to spin in space. :The vessel tasked with the mission —The ICARUS CRAFT — is a custom-built “space-proof” turntable attached to a high-altitude balloon designed by Kevin Carrico, who has NASA in his blood, and is responsible for assisting in the restoration of many of Third Man’s machines (Third Man Recording Booth) to working order. Kevin and the Third Man team are aided in their endeavor by SATINS (Students and Teachers in Near Space)," they detailed. Find more information here.
