Yoko Ono[edit]

Maybe it is just me, but it sounds like Yoko Ono is getting a little carried away with her quote, considering this is not the first time it has been done and Communication implies two parties for the exchange of Information. --HockeyInJune 23:21, 10 February 2008 (UTC)

I agree, though I admit, I would think of a much more cornier quote if I was affiliated with a song being sent into space FOR THE FIRST TIME.

Sound can not travel in a vacuum[edit]

Sound can NOT travel in a vacuum! Who does not know this? NASA should! Sound waves require matter to travel through.

Yes, and that would be a problem if NASA was indeed doing it in that fashion. However, if you outside and get into a car, flip on the radio, and you will discover that sound can be transmitted via RADIO WAVES over extraordinarily long distances [Theme to 2001: A Space Odyssey playing in the background]. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.177.236.138 (talk) 04:29, 12 March 2008 (UTC)
The signal was sent digitally,meaning that it was sent in 1's and 0's. It does not need air to travel through to be heard. How would NASA sent voice transmissions to the astronauts if they had to rely on sound travelling through a vacuum.

Wikinews censorship[edit]

I several times corrected this false assertion:

This will mark the first time music has been sent into deep space,

but Wikinews censor deleted my corrections. Shame on you!!!

Shame on your pro-American Wikinews !!! —Preceding unsigned comment added by METIfan (talkcontribs) 17:23, 20 March 2008 (UTC)

He did not act as a censor. He applied site policy. We do not edit articles days after they are published. --Brian McNeil / talk 19:05, 20 March 2008 (UTC)
