Gift Idea: A Voyager Golden Record

Bolted to the side of the Voyager 1 and 2 spacecraft are the famous “Sounds of Earth” Golden Records, a collection–an interstellar mixtape, if you prefer–of audio and video from Earth that may one day be discovered and decoded by our future alien overlords.

While the originals are billions of miles away, we here on the human home world can finally have our own copies thanks to a stupidly successful Kickstarter campaign. They sell for $98 USD each. Get yours here.
