Murmurs of Earth

The Voyager Interstellar Record

By Carl Sagan, F. D. Drake, Ann Druyan, Timothy Ferris, Jon Lomberg & Linda Salzman Sagan
Narrated by F. D. Drake, Ann Druyan, Timothy Ferris, Jon Lomberg & Nick Sagan / 5 hours 44 minutes

In 1977, two extraordinary spacecraft called Voyager were launched to the stars. Affixed to each Voyager craft was a gold-coated copped phonograph record as a message to possible extra-terrestrial civilizations that might encounter the spacecraft in some distant space and time. Each record contained 118 photographs of our planet; almost 90 minutes of the world's greatest music; an evolutionary audio essay on "The Sounds of Earth"; and greetings in almost sixty human languages (and one whale language). This book is an account, written by those chiefly responsible for the contents of the Voyager Record, of why they did it, how they selected the repertoire, and precisely what the record contains.
