Now You Too Can Hear the Golden Record – On Vinyl

NASA Golden Record

Earthlings can now order their very own vinyl version of the “Voyager Golden Record,” which NASA sent into deep space decades ago in an attempt to reach intelligent life.

The soundtrack has been available on SoundCloud and came out as a CD in 1992. Now, Ozma Records is preparing to release it on vinyl as early as January through distributor Light in the Attic, reports The Washington Post. It’s already available for preorder.

Two sets of the phonograph album — with images and instructions in symbolic language — were rocketed into space in 1977, one aboard the Voyager 1 and the other aboard Voyager 2. Sounds from animals and the outdoors, plus rock, classical and other genres of international music, were recorded onto the 12-inch, gold-plated copper disks.
