The Golden Record

* click article to enlarge

Included within the Sounds of Earth audio portion of the Golden Record is a track containing the inspirational message ad astra per aspera in Morse Code. Translated from Latin, it means, through hardships to the stars.

This is a present from a small, distant world, a token of our sounds, our science, our images, our music, our thoughts and our feelings. We are attempting to survive our time so we may live into yours. - U.S. President Jimmy Carter

Without doubt the Voyager golden record and the pioneer plaques are some of the coolest things ever made - and Carl Sagan is about the coolest guy ever.
