“Our species needs, and deserves, a citizenry with minds wide awake and a basic understanding of how the world works.”

-Carl Sagan


“The Pioneer plaques are a pair of goldanodized aluminium plaques which were placed on board the 1972 Pioneer 10 and 1973 Pioneer 11 spacecraft, featuring a pictorial message, in case either Pioneer 10 or 11 is intercepted by extraterrestrial life. The plaques show the nude figures of a human male and female along with several symbols that are designed to provide information about the origin of the spacecraft.[1]

The Pioneer spacecraft were the first human-built objects to leave the Solar System. The plaques were attached to the spacecraft’s antenna support struts in a position that would shield them from erosion by stellar dust. – #Wikipedia
