"Send more Chuck Berry"

  • Hear all the sounds and see the images we sent into space on the Voyagers 40 years ago
  • Which are currently 12 billion miles away
  • Our warehouse is much more convenient

When we think of the Voyager Golden Records, what comes to mind is the set of diagrams that are actually on the cover and not the record itself (well, or Carl Sagan, because, you know, CARL SAGAN). These sleeves show hypothetical beings how to access the information on the record itself and how they'd find us. The sleeves and records in combination explain in the language of science and math what we're all about, which is a pretty neat way to introduce yourself if you ask us.

Now you can have all of that interstellar sciency goodness on your living room table, which is particularly convenient in case the aliens show up at your house first. In the Voyager Golden Record Vinyl 3LP Box Set you'll get 3 vinyl LPs in heavyweight jackets, a 96-page companion book containing all the images included on the original, a 12" square gold foil print of the Voyager Golden Record cover diagram, a DLC for the audio files, and a turntable slipmat with a NASA/JPL-Caltech diagram of the Voyager spacecrafts' trajectories across the solar system, all packed in a custom record box.
