Jack White played the first vinyl record in space

Nashville rocker Jack White has successfully played a vinyl record in space — the first person ever to do so. On Saturday, White launched a gold-plated 12-inch master of Carl Sagan’s “A Glorious Dawn” using a ‘space-proof’ turntable attached to a high-altitude balloon. The vessel — known as “The Icarus Craft” — ascended 94,413 feet above the earth in less than 90 minutes.
