Website Review: Lightyear.FM

LIGHTYEAR.FM takes users on a journey through space, time, and music.
This amazing immersive experience demonstrates how far radio broadcast waves have traveled from the Earth over the past century. The default option takes users backwards through time beginning in 2015. Users hear short segments from popular music as they speed away from the Earth in light years.
The interactive site allows students to select the distance from Earth as well as click on celestial objects.
Librarians will find this easy-to-use website a fascinating way to help students understand space, time, and human broadcast history. Pair the website with books that explore these topics.
To visit the website, go to http://www.lightyear.fm/.
