“Forty years ago this week, NASA launched the second of two Voyager spacecraft on a grand tour of the solar system and into the mysteries of interstellar space. It was an audacious mission that continues to this day — as the probes launched in 1977 still call home with new data about the cosmos.”
Pescovitz is the co-founder of Ozma Records, which has issued the Voyager Golden Record as a vinyl box set and a book/CD package. “The Voyager Golden Record: 40th Anniversary Edition” became Kickstarter’s most funded music project, and Ozma Records donated 20% of the net profits from that limited Kickstarter edition to the Carl Sagan Institute.
