"We are a species endowed with hope and perseverance, at least a little intelligence, substantial generosity and a palpable zest to make contact with the cosmos."
So said Carl Sagan, head of the ambitious Voyager Interstellar Record project, a set of records encoded with information about humanity's life on Earth, launched into interstellar space with the intention of giving anyone or anything out there a time capsule of our culture, including music, mathematics, literature, and much more.
These reproductions of that record are fully functioning vinyl records that play the music selections from the Voyager Record — everything from Bach to Chuck Berry, including ambient sounds of Earth — and are accompanied by a full-color book containing all of the images encoded on the original Voyager Interstellar Record. Here's what you get:
- Three translucent gold 140 gram vinyl LPs in poly-lined paper sleeves
- Three heavyweight jackets, gold ink on black
- Full-color 96-page softcover book containing all images included on the original Voyager Interstellar Record, gallery of images transmitted back from the Voyager probes, and a new essay by Timothy Ferris, producer of the original golden record
- Gold foil print of Voyager Golden Record cover diagram, archival paper, 12" x 12"
- Voyager trajectories turntable slipmat, gold ink on black felt
- Full-color plastic digital download card for all audio of the Voyager Golden Record (MP3 or FLAC formats)
- Deluxe record box with pull-ribbon, gold ink on black
