Voyager spacecraft plaque, artwork

Voyager spacecraft plaque. Artwork of the Golden Record carried by the Voyager 1 and 2 spacecraft as a message to intelligent life. They give audio and visual information about Earth and its people, including greetings in 55 languages. At centre right are details of how to play the record and its sounds, with information on viewing the images at lower left. The circle in the rectangle is the first image, so aliens will know their interpretation is correct. The lines at upper centre show Earths position relative to 14 pulsars. The 2 circles at upper left represent the hydrogen atom. The Voyagers were launched in 1977, and will reach nearby stars in 40, 000 years

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases the Voyager spacecraft plaque, a remarkable artwork that was carried by the Voyager 1 and 2 spacecraft as a message to intelligent life. The Golden Record contained within this plaque provides audio and visual information about Earth and its people, serving as an interstellar introduction to our planet. Greetings in 55 languages are included, ensuring that any potential extraterrestrial recipients can understand our warm welcome. The intricate design of the plaque is displayed against a clean white background, emphasizing its historical significance in astronomical research and exploration. A circular illustration at the center-right reveals details on how to play the record and interpret its sounds, while instructions for viewing images are provided at the lower left corner. Notably, the first image within this circle serves as a crucial reference point for aliens to confirm their interpretation. Additionally, lines located at upper center depict Earth's position relative to 14 pulsars, offering further context about our location in space. Two circles positioned at upper left represent hydrogen atoms – fundamental building blocks of matter – symbolizing humanity's scientific knowledge. It is awe-inspiring to consider that these Voyagers were launched back in 1977 with hopes of reaching nearby stars in approximately 40,000 years. Detlev van Ravenswaay beautifully captures this piece of history through his expertly crafted photograph. This image stands as a testament to human curiosity and ambition in exploring beyond our planetary boundaries.
