The golden record set is a love-letter to the Voyager probes and the individuals who worked hard to come up with a message to an alien civilization. It’s excellent.
Thanks bud. Really appreciate that.
Love the work that went into this!
Dear extraterrestrial species, here’s a golden record that represent our sincere efforts to teach you about us as we reach out to the stars looking for intelligent life. We sincerely hope that the plutonium power source that powers this craft doesn’t kill you.
Any life form that has mastered deep space travel has also mastered handling hard radiation (or is possibly impervious to it).
Besides, 238Pu has a half-life of 87.7 years. Both Voyager probes have barely left the heliosphere and are roundabout some 20 light hours out. By the time they get anywhere near another system, the plutonium in the RTGs will be lead (206Pb).
However, the sooner the Send more Chuck Berry! signal arrives, the better.
Seconded. I was a backer and the two people I gave them to as gifts a couple years ago loved them.
Thank you for your support!
