Hello Out There

Forty years ago the two Voyager spacecraft were launched on a scientific mission to explore the outer planets of our solar system. But each also carries a unique message from humanity to the cosmos – a Golden Record – a 12-inch gold-plated copper disk containing sounds and images selected to portray the diversity of life and culture on Earth. Tim O’Brien will tell the story of the Golden Record and what it contains, discuss the various ways in which we’ve attempted to contact extraterrestrials and ask the question, what would we put on a Golden Record today?
Presented by Tim O’Brien.
