Voices In The Void

More

A stirring piece produced by Claire L. Evans for the World Science Festival:

This video montage is a meditation on [the Voyager Golden Record], our loneliness, and the herculean, courageous task of SETI. The now-distant voices -- all of whom make statements of earnest peace, curiosity, and goodwill, our best human attributes -- are paired with images of the night sky from their countries of origin. It seems they are shouting out into the void; indeed, the people on the Golden Record (and perhaps our entire civilization) will be long gone by the time the Voyager probes pass within range of another star system.
