  1. I expected voyager one and two to be number one, to think that one day in alien civilization may come across it and it be the bridge between first contact

  2. Some plutonians are still salty about the demotion to dwarf planet. Luckily for us earthlings the royal family are pretty rad and managed to quell the more zealous factions of the populace.

    • Hermann Oberth and Wernher von Braun based much of the V-2 design on US patents filed by Robert H. Goddard more than a decade earlier… do thank an American for this.

  3. Gotta mention it cause why not. The Pioneer space missions didn’t have the gold disc. That was the voyager missions. You can even see the gold plate in the animation. Additionally the disc was encoded with images of and from earth, sounds and music, as well as greetings in almost every language.
