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 Earth's 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.
