Release Date:03/09/2018;Notes:Limited box set containing four vinyl LP pressings and book. Includes digital download. In 1977, NASA launched two spacecraft, Voyager 1 and 2, on a grand tour of the solar system and into the mysteries of interstellar space. Attached to each of these probes is a beautiful golden phonograph record containing a message for any extraterrestrial intelligence that might encounter it, perhaps billions of years from now. This enchanting artifact, known as the Voyager Golden Record, may be the last vestige of our civilization after we are gone forever. Curated by a visionary committee led by Carl Sagan, the golden record tells a story of our planet expressed in music, sounds, images, and science. Etched on the record's gold-plated aluminum jacket is a diagram explaining where it came from and how to play it. The golden record was a gift from humanity to the cosmos. But it is also a gift to humanity. It's a reminder of what we can achieve when we are at our best-and that our future really is up to all of us.;Track List:1.
