‘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…”
