The Voyager Golden Record was compiled by two people in love: the astronomer Carl Sagan, and Ann Druyan, the creative director of the project, who he would later marry. Druyan... recorded the electrical impulses of her brain and nervous system, her heartbeats... which were the sounds of a woman swept away: by a man, by ideas, by the power of sending their love out into eternity... Love, golden, close to eternal, flying at impossible speeds through the heavens.

The Voyager Golden Records are phonograph records included aboard both Voyager spacecrafts launched in 1977 by NASA. Among other things about Earth, they feature the music of Bach, Beethoven, Guan Pinghu, Mozart, Stravinsky, Blind Willie Johnson, Chuck Berry and Kesarbai Kerkar. Voyager 1 left the solar system in Nov. 2004 and it is estimated that both Voyager craft have sufficient electrical power to operate their radio transmitters until at least 2025…
