When Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 launched into space in 1977, their mission was to explore the outer {61} system, and over the following decade, they did so admirably.

With an 8track tape memory system and onboard computers that are thousands of times weaker than the phone in your pocket, the two spacecraft sent back an immense amount of imagery and information about the four gas giants, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune.

But NASA knew that after the planetary tour was complete, the Voyagers would remain on a trajectory toward interstellar space, having gained enough velocity from Jupiters gravity to eventually escape the grasp of the sun. Since they will orbit the Milky Way for the foreseeable future, the Voyagers should carry a message from their maker, NASA scientists decided.

The Voyager team tapped famous astronomer and science popularizer Carl Sagan to compose that message. Sagans committee chose a copper phonograph LP as their medium, and over the course of six weeks they produced theGolden Record“: a collection of sounds and images that will probably outlast all human artifacts on Earth.
