Voyager 1 - 40th Anniversary

Post by Ray P » Wed Dec 06, 2017 7:32 pm

I guess most of us are of that age where we have witnessed the period from when there were no man made objects in orbit around Earth, to the Apollo Moon landings, to the first steps in the exporation of Mars, along with much more.

One of the major highpoints of that period are the Voyager Missions; Having gathered vast amounts of information about our Solar System, Voyager 1 is now in deep space heading towards the stars and carries a message from planet Earth. To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the first Voyager launch a Kickstarter initiative was launched to make the Golden Record, the carrier for that message, available. The CD version is released on December 15th and a vinyl version is supposed to follow in a few months. It's far from cheap but I thought it might be of interest to some here; ... 0692973826

I'm very tempted.
