[b]Voyager Space Probe Golden Record Cover[/b]
The Voyager 1 and 2 missions featured some of the most ambitious unmanned spacecraft to ever be launched into space. As part of this program, each probe carried a golden disc similar to the grooved vinyl long-laying phonograph records of the time. Pressed onto each disc were sounds and images from Earth.
The contents were chosen for NASA by a committee chaired by Dr. Carl Sagan of Cornell University. A cover plate for the "golden record" were designed to protect against micrometeorite bombardment in deep space. A diagram engraved on the plate gives the eventual finder of the disc the key to playing the record.
Artifactory brings you an exact replica of the record cover and its famous interstellar "welcome signs." Our replica is machined from metal alloy sheet and features all of the correct engraved markings. A detailed document accompanies each replica, explaining the meaning of all the markings. Each replica disc comes permanently attached to an attractive wall display plaque. [list][*]Diameter 12-1/8"
