Baroque music is literally out of this world. When NASA launched the Voyager spacecraft in 1977 to study Jupiter and Saturn, the agency included a copper disc with instructions on how to play it. The disc contains greetings in dozens of languages, sounds representing our planet, and music. If any intelligent life form ever plays the disc, it’ll hear that music.

A Deadly Calling
(November 1943 - June 1944) - Despite American
victories in the Solomons and New Guinea, the Japanese empire still

newsreel footage and grows more determined to do
what's necessary to hasten the end of the war.
