Golden Record

Golden Record

‘Droppin’ Science’ is a term that gets tossed around quite a bit on this blog from all three of us at times.  In fact, Dave’s constant dedication and activity has nearly earned him a doctorate on the subject.  So, it’s with these thoughts in mind that I post about NASA’s Golden Record.  Droppin’ Science, literally.

Voyager 1 & 2 were launched into outer-space in 1977 with a time capsule of sorts.  Something the mad scientists looked at as a way of keeping up with extraterrestrial relations.   The contents of the record is a series of images and sounds specifically assembled to help tell the tale of our world should something intercept the spacecrafts in the future. 

A concept that combines my love of music, my favorite movie and my birth year?  It all makes sense to me now.  

“Droppin’ science like Galileo dropped an orange…”

    You’re bringing heart and intellectual posts to the table now. Well played! This is some next level shit that I had absolutely no idea about. Quality. The official sound page is pretty intense. There is a lot of motivational classical music up in there!

    Consider yourself out of the slump!

    Jason’s dropping science all over us. He works in NASA, Scott Miller, and Back to the Future in post. He’s the Federer of MiS. Damn. Jason was in a slump? If Jason was in a slump, I’m dead. No joke.

    Dude, my case is silver! That comment is a “pingback”. Some web reference tool to let us know someone linked our blog. Not sure how it works.
