More "Star Stuff"

So in the spirit of TheSolarSurfer's recent post I thought I'd make you all aware of the Golden Record.  These records were incorporated onto the Voyager Space missions of the 1970's.  Designed by Sagan, they contain representative sounds of life on earth such as whale calls and babies crying.  Cool eh? I think so.
 Anyway, if someone important should comment, I can give you a quote from President Jimmy Carter about these records: "This is a present from a small, distant world, a token of our sounds, our science, our images, our music, our thoughts and our feelings. We are attempting to survive our time so we may live into yours." Legit.
