During the 1970s, he developed plaques for equipment that NASA thought had the potential of being discovered millions or billions of years in the future.<br><br>The most ambitious project was the golden records for the Voyager probes. Sagan was given the daunting task of assembling a guide to all things human. Something that would fit on a standard 12-inch record.<br><br>The Voyager crafts investigated Jupiter and Saturn before essentially becoming two messages in a bottle, cast into what Sagan calls the “cosmic ocean.”<br> Tue, 27 Aug 2013 10:00:00 +0000 Andrew Bales 22472 at http://kmuw.org Into It: Human Civilization On A Golden Record
