VOYAGER- REACHING BEYOND EARTHLY HEAVENS


Voyager One was launched in 1977 and shortly after Voyager 2, there mission explore the deep sections of our galaxy. Well almost forty years later they have surpassed their mission and continue to travel outside of our galaxy near 13,000,000,000 miles currently. They both continue to send signals back to Earth, on different trajectories.

What's interesting, they are the farthest man made objects have travelled and has been unexpected surprise of new information being

The Golden Record Cover

In the upper left-hand corner is an easily recognized drawing of the phonograph record and the stylus carried with it. The stylus is in the correct position to play the record from the beginning. Written around it in binary arithmetic is the correct time of one rotation of the record, 3.6 seconds, expressed in time units of 0,70 billionths of a second, the time period associated with a fundamental transition of the hydrogen atom. The drawing indicates that the record should be played from the outside in. Below this drawing is a side view of the record and stylus, with a binary number giving the time to play one side of the record - about an hour.

"SPIRAL IN VASTNESS 
ALONE IN EXPLORATION
A SYMBOL OF HUMANTIY
CRAFTED IN GOLDNESS."
