In 1977, NASA launched the space probes Voyager 1 and Voyager 2. Each vessel contained what unique item in its cargo hold?
- Lego figurines
- A replica of Luke Skywalker's lightsaber
- A golden phonograph record
Each probe contained one gold phonograph record consisting of 115 images, 90 minutes of music, spoken greetings in 55 different languages and a 12-minute mix of common sounds of Earth. Astronomers Carl Sagan and Frank Drake crafted the records with the hope that extraterrestrials might find the probes. What out-of-this-world single will the aliens who discover the devices hear? The 1958 hit "Johnny B. Goode" by rock and roll legend Chuck Berry. Source: The Smithsonian Institute.
