Story | Jan 20, 2015 | 4:32 PMThere’s a good chance we’re not alone in the universe. We, the citizens of Earth, have yet to knowingly communicate with extraterrestrial lifeforms, unless our cats or David Bowie are keeping something from us, as we suspect they might be. But we have tried, on many occasions, to project our planetary identity into the unfathomable vastness that surrounds us. In 1977, Carl Sagan and Ann Druyan selected images and audio recordings to be shot into space via the “Golden Record” aboard the Voyager 1 and 2 probes. The contents of the record, which continues to float through the cosmos, are intended to express the essence of life on Earth to anyone or thing that will listen. Even if attempts like this are totally in vain, and there is no one on the other end who is listening or even exists, defining ourselves to the universe is an essential of understanding our own nature.
