Over the past six months, I've been working on something rather special and at 07:30 this morning, all was revealed on the national children's radio station, Fun Kids.
We're sending a message to space.
The project is called Mission Transmission and has been a personal labour of love for the past half-year. Earlier today, KIDZ BOP – who have recorded a version of Coldplay and BTS's song My Universe which we're dubbing the official anthem of the project – and Dr. Emily Drabek-Maunder from the Royal Observatory Greenwich launched it with Sean on the Fun Kids breakfast show.
Head to FunKidsLive.com to answer a few questions and submit the voice of yourself or a loved one.
We're then editing those submissions into a thirty-minute 'love letter from Earth' that'll be beamed to the starts from the Royal Observatory Greenwich at 7pm on February 14th 2022 – Valentine's Day – where it'll travel until the end of the universe.
Submissions close on February 10th 2022.
Fun Kids is the UK's children's radio station. You can listen to Fun Kids on DAB Digital Radio, online, on the free Fun Kids mobile app and on your smart speaker – just say 'play Fun Kids'.
You'll next hear from me on January 31st 2022.
