Hello from the Children of Planet Earth: The Voyager Interstellar Mission Golden Record

The Golden Record

When the Voyager Interstellar Mission launched in 1977 it carried with it a phonograph containing messages, music, images and sounds of Earth and humanity.  The phonograph was produced by astronomer Carl Sagan, who led a team of artists, writers and scientists to create a kind of time capsule intended to communicate a story of our world to extraterrestrials.  The Golden Record is a pure expression of a pre-digital, technologically sophisticated humanities that is dependent upon and celebrates the points of contact between science, art, nature, culture and mathematics. 

The Voyager phonograph is a 12-inch gold-plated copper disk encoded  with sounds and images selected to portray the diversity of life and culture on Earth.  The Golden Record
