In Space Everyone Hears Fetty Wap
Lightyear.fm is an amazing demonstration of the speed that radio waves travel in space. By taking you on a virtual journey into space Lightyear.fm also shows you how far your favorite songs have traveled out into the Universe.
Once you lift-off and begin your spaceflight away from Earth your wireless radio receiver begins to pick up the latest music being broadcast from your home planet The only problem is that the further you travel from Earth the older the music you have to listen to. Unfortunately those radio waves take a little time to reach you - so the further you travel from Earth the older the tunes.
The application was created with WebGL and is inspired by the opening scene in the movie Contact.
