நேற்று இல்லை நாளை இல்லை

The legendary music director will be pioneering the efforts of a space team and his song will be orbiting in outer space in a satellite. A Tamil Nadu based team of space aspirants has developed one of the world’s smallest satellites, which is to be launched with the help of NASA. Ilaiyaraaja’s music will fly to space in a satellite and be performed there, and if it is successful, it will be immortalised as the maestro’s legacy.
According to Time News, the musician has composed a special song that will be played in space and the team has been working on the remarkable project.
