In 1977 the space probes Voyager 1 & 2 were launched. The Golden Record was sent with both space vehicles. A Golden disc with sounds and images on them to portray the diversity of our world as exact as possible as selected by the NASA. It is designed to be a message for extraterrestrial life when it finds the record. The Voyagers will take at least 40.000 years to get near to another star. And it will take that long at minimum for the Golden Record to be found.
The original Golden Record is not a comprehensive scientific view on our planet but a subjective vision from NASA. My Golden Record is a personal reaction to this. But also on how we deal with each other and the Earth.
