A Record For Aliens

There is a record for aliens to listen to on the Voyager spacecraft.

When both Voyager spacecraft were launched in 1977, NASA included a record called the “Voyager Golden Record” which contains music, sound and images chosen to portray life on Earth. The record is intended to be listened to by any intelligent life form, or perhaps future humans, that might find it. The contents of the record were selected by a committee chaired by Carl Sagan and this earthling mix tape includes songs of birds and whales, spoken greetings in 55 ancient and modern languages and a musical selection that includes Beethoven, Bach, Chuck Berry and Blind Willie Johnson.

And whose music would you send into space?
