(MASHABLE UK) – White’s record label, Third Man Records, successfully launched the Icarus Craft some 94,000 feet (just shy of 18 miles) above the earth. And, the entire time, the craft successfully played a vinyl record, a recording of Carl Sagan’s “A Glorious Dawn.”

According to the label, the craft was designed by the label’s electronics consultant Kevin Carrico and was launched on July 2 outside of Marsing, Idaho. Carrico was assisted by members of SATINS (Students and Teachers in Near Space).
