Watch Jack White attempt to play a vinyl record in space




T minus 33 1/3rpm.

Four years in the planning, Jack White’s hair-brained scheme to play a vinyl record in outer space is on the verge of becoming a reality.

Like Felix Baumgartner perched on the edge of his Stratos pod, we wait with baited breath. And like that epic base jump, Third Man have rigged a live stream to capture the whole cosmic playback, which is due to take place on 30th July at midday CT, (6PM BST).

Update: The flight was a success! See more from Third Man below:
