The Voyager Golden Record LP Box Set

Voyager 1, a space probe launched by NASA in 1977, has served as an invaluable transmitter of scientific data back to Earth and, thanks to the Golden Record, as a critical cultural ambassador. An analog compilation that strives to encapsulate the story of Earth in sound, the Golden Record contains a collage of global music, spoken greetings in 55 languages (and one whale language), and aural samples of natural and engineered environments.

Story

Voyager 1, a space probe launched by NASA in 1977, has served as an invaluable transmitter of scientific data back to Earth and, thanks to the Golden Record, as a critical cultural ambassador. An analog compilation that strives to encapsulate the story of Earth in sound, the Golden Record contains a collage of global music, spoken greetings in 55 languages (and one whale language), and aural samples of natural and engineered environments. A committee of scientists and anthropologists headed by the venerable Carl Sagan designed the optimal soundtrack for our first alien encounter, encoding a series of representative images in the grooves.

The Voyager Golden Record LP Set is presented in prime terrestrial format: three translucent-gold,140g vinyl LPs contain an exhaustive tracklist of earthly audio. Musical samples range from Bach and Blind Willie Johnson to Azerbaijani bagpipes and Navajo chants. The LPs are accompanied by a 96-page book detailing the Golden Record's history, design, and encoded images, as well as the logic of its symbology. Best Made’s Voyager Golden Record LP Set is presented as a stunning box set with a gold foil print of the Record cover diagram and a felt turntable slipmat depicting the Voyager trajectory.
