TYPONEXUS: GOLDEN RECORD II - Heliopause
"This is a present from a small distant world, a token of our sounds, our science, our images, our music, our thoughts, and our feelings. We are attempting to survive our time so we may live into yours. We hope someday, having solved the problems we face, to join a community of galactic civilisations. This record represents our hope and our determination, and our good will in a vast and awesome universe." - From Golden Record greeting
Once again, it's that point in spacetime for typonexus to lead a cadre of cosmonauts on a vivid, immersive, cutting-edge, multi-sensory odyssey with a mission to deliver our annual Golden Record update across frontiers of outer space. Spikes in audiovisual intake registered by the Cosmic Organ Control Panel indicate that Voyager 1 advanced beyond the heliopause. Don your spacesuits, converge at the Deep Space Network Station (disguised on your map as a century-old, historic landmark site), and join the transmission. Tracing the trajectory of the farthest-reaching spacecraft, we escape the electromagnetic embrace of our solar system and delve into mysteries of the interstellar medium, while reflecting on that pale blue dot we call home - and our place within it.
Golden Record is a holistic script of ourselves, humans - a collage of unique, individual manifestations of the whole - traversing the Universe as we search beyond - within and without. It's a foray into the world of human expression - an intimate, ephemeral, multifaceted sample of our civilization. It's a message in a bottle carrying our identity: culture, imagination, accomplishments and aspirations.
This evening is a collective writing of our own.
