Voyager 1 and Messages From Earth

Reboot Stories

In 1977, NASA placed a message aboard Voyager 1 and 2 a kind of time capsule, intended to communicate a story of our world to extraterrestrials. This gold-plated phonograph record contains sounds and images selected to portray the diversity of life on Earth: 115 images, natural sounds, musical selections, and spoken greetings in 55 languages.

In 2013, we are going to send a new, 21st Century message... selected by you.

Visit wishforthefuture.com to create messages for our time capsule.
