Voyagers Golden Record
In 1977, NASA launched two space probes, Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 each probe carried a Golden Record containing information about Earth and its inhabitants. Ann Druyan was responsible for the selection of this information.
It was during the Voyager Project that she met and fell in love with astronomer Carl Sagan, whom she
later married. The missions of both probes continue to this day
Voyager 1 is now 9.5 billion miles from the Sun - the most distant man-made object in space !
