Did you know that NASA's 1977 "Voyager Golden Record" — launched into space for potential alien listeners in 1977, is also available to human listeners ?

With sounds from Bach and Chuck Berry to humpback whales and a baby crying, an album used by NASA in the 1970s is set to be publicly released.

The phonograph album — known as "Voyager Golden Record" — originally was launched into space on Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 spacecrafts in 1977. NASA officials at the time hoped the record would be picked up by alien life.

 

The original album likely still is floating in space as it was made from copper and coated in gold to protect it from space conditions.

 

The soundtrack is available on SoundCloud, and a CD was released in the early 1990s. Through a Kickstarter campaign, record label Ozma Records gave album copies to those who helped to reach the $1.4 million goal. The album is expected to be released in January.

Philippe J DEWOST's insight:

Of music, space and stars... when NASA launched Golden Records instead of being awarded them :-)
