Best of Kickstarter: The Voyager Golden Record

voyager8

When NASA launched Voyager I and II in 1977 they included a special recording created by a committee of artists and scientists chaired by astronomer Carl Sagan. The Voyager Golden Record was their attempt at encapsulating Earth and its inhabitants through sounds of music and nature, human (and whale) languages, and over 100 encoded images.

While originally intended for any extraterrestrials the spacecrafts might come across, special vinyl copies of the original phonograph record are being made available for the first time through Kickstarter! See more images and information below.

Retro-Inspired Space Tourism Posters for NASA’s Visions of the Future

NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory has commissioned a series of posters celebrating the future of space travel with retro-inspired designs. Evoking a golden age of exploration, the Visions of the Future campaign imagines a time when one might travel to Jupiter for weather balloon rides the same way we seek out Hawaiian vacations for their sunsets, and encourages us to think not only about the kind of future we want but how we might get there.

Invader invades space

Invader invades space
Invader has spent years hiding his ceramic creations all over the globe but last month he sent one somewhere new – space! Well, actually to be honest I’m not sure if this technically qualifies as space. Does it? Would this be the stratosphere? Is that something? In any case, it was attached to a balloon and it went… somewhere. Video below!
