You can now listen to NASA Voyager’s ‘Golden Record’, intended for aliens & future humans, on Soundcloud
And now NASA has treated present-day life on Earth to a treat – some of those recordings are now available on Soundcloud for your listening pleasure.
It is also the same record that includes the brainwaves of Ann Druyan, who was collaborating on the Golden Record and falling in love with Carl Sagan at the time.
Both Voyager probes are currently on their way out to the star known as AC +79 3888 in their mission to explore interstellar space. Voyager 1 is believed to have passed the boundary of the heliosphere, the enormous magnetic bubble that encompasses our Solar System, and entered interstellar space in 2012 – though it will still take about 40,000 years for it to reach AC +79 3888.
You can view the real-time locations of both Voyagers on their NASA website.
