Descrição

In 1977, two extraordinary spacecraft called Voyager were launched to the stars. Affixed to each Voyager craft was a gold-coated copped phonograph record as a message to possible extra-terrestrial civilizations that might encounter the spacecraft in some distant space and time. Each record contained 118 photographs of our planet; almost 90 minutes of the world's greatest music; an evolutionary audio essay on 'The Sounds of Earth'; and greetings in almost sixty human languages (and one whale language). This book is an account, written by those chiefly responsible for the contents of the Voyager Record, of why they did it, how they selected the repertoire, and precisely what the record contains.

Introductory music from the original score for COSMOS: A SpaceTime Odyssey composed by Alan Silvestri, used with permission from Cosmos Studios, Inc. and Chappers Music. All rights reserved. Special thanks to Fuzzy Planets, Inc.

    I have always been fascinated by the Voyager spacecraft. The thought of those little workhorses still spinning through space decades after being launched, endlessly and patiently faithful to the commands of those who made them and sent them on their way is always incredible to me. And as our first ambassadors to whatever may live beyond our solar system, nothing is more evocative than the little gold record each carries, with the voices, music and images of humanity. The story of how the record was assembled, the difficulties in finding exactly what the creators wanted to put on it, the instances of serendipity where they found content that was perfect by sheer chance, is enthralling . This book is a treasure, and the farther the little spacecraft travel into the cosmos, the more precious it will become.
