Inspired by Contact, the website lightyear.fm gives you a chance to travel faster than light and see how far songs have travelled since being broadcast on Earth.

Although Lightyear.fm has radiowaves reaching over 100 lightyears into space, due to the Inverse Square Law of Propagation, any terrestrial radio broadcast would become nothing but background noise just a few light years away from Earth. So take comfort in knowing that all those awesome constellations up there will never hear Rebecca Black.
