The Weekly Filet brings you the five best links of the week, every Friday. Making sense of the big issues of our time (with a healthy dose of serendipity and nerdiness). Curated by journalist David Bauer.

Radio broadcasts leave earth at the speed of light. That means aliens with excellent hearing that live one light year from earth have just discovered Pharrell Williams’ «Happy». A great (audio-)visualisation of how far earth’s most annoying earworms have travelled into space. Pluto, just in case you’re wondering, is still spinning this year’s hits.
